Pinot Noir 2015
$0 / Bottle (750ml)
Pinot Noir is a delicate grape, famously reflective of the place and people that grow it. Made with a gentle touch, this carefully crafted small-lot wine reveals the distinctive character of our estate vineyards.
With a warm spring, the vines got off to an early start. The weather turned cool during bloom which impacted fruit set and resulted in fewer grapes per cluster. The size of the crop was further reduced as the dry soils, from a lack of late rains, led to smaller grapes. The weather was warm throughout the summer leading right into one of our earliest harvests ever. The resulting wines are fantastic as the smaller grapes and fine weather contributed to ideal ripeness with very concentrated flavors.
The alluring aroma includes notes of raspberry and cherry with a hint of forest floor. The palate is velvety and features flavors of darker fruits, mushrooms, and baking spices.
The ultimate food pairing wine, Pinot Noir shines with leaner meats, poultry, and sausage. The wine is uplifted with earthy flavors like truffles and mushrooms. Complement with coriander, rosemary, thyme, tarragon, cinnamon, or allspice.
