Description

This wine is handled very gently in the cellar allowing the nuances of the delicate fruit to be preserved and the wine to be approachable in its youth. We have a preference for pump-overs versus punch-downs for its smoother extraction and softening effect on the tannin. To soften and mature the wine we age it primarily in neutral oak. The result is a fresh, fruit forward Pinot Noir with hints of earth and spice.

Ratings

90 points - Vinous
Deep vivid red. Spice-tinged red berries and fresh flowers on the perfumed nose. Lithe and focused in the mouth, offering fresh raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that turn sweeter with aeration. Silky tannins make a late appearance on the finish, which lingers with very good, spice-tinged persistence.
