Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) A classic red-fruited Pinot Noir with dark, earthy, savory elements, characteristically cracked pepper, tea leaf, cinnamon, charcoal, matchstick, spice and plum. The acidity of the vintage gives a structure to suspend wood and tannin elements playfully on the palate. Balance is excellent, length good and final impressions are red, delicate and complex.

    I am not a Pinot fan but this wine could convert me. Smooth, smoky eith fruit. Well balanced. Delicious

    Reminding of its mate above in its varietal precision, but slightly less well-filled, this one is nonetheless a nicely fruited, somewhat tangy but enjoyable offering. It too will make a fine accompani-ment to the fleshier fishes or light meats but wants dishes made with a finer hand than its sibling.
