Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) Deep violet/red garnet color; enticing aromas of smoked almond, black cherry, and bergamot tea. Vibrant, juicy flavors of fresh crushed wild raspberries mingled with vanilla and toasted oats. These flavors resonate in their focus and purity. There is a harmony of fruit and oak that gives this Pinot Noir finesse without taking away from its power. Firm tannins and flavors that don’t quit speak well for the wine’s ability to age an additional 5 to 7 years.Alcohol 14.4%.
