About the wine

Tasting notes

Elegant pinot noir from a cooler year in the valley, shows aromatics of raspberries, winter strawberries and herbs. The palate is tightly wound with a streak of freshness running through its core of cherry, fresh herbs, forest floor and spice. Polished but still youthfully chewy tannins carry the wine to good length.
