Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Ruby in color, concentrated aromas of wet slate, graphite, boysenberry emerge and lead to a silky palate featuring blackberry, dried herbs and cherry cobbler flavors. The firm tannins and lively acidity frame the ample palate and the sip is complete by an extended finish of minerality

Winemaker's Notes

An elegant, supple and stylish wine. Vibrant aromas of black cherries, brown sugar, spices, rose petals, vanilla and typical ‘Pinot noir dust’. Initial spicy flavors of nutmeg and barrel toast with ripe flavors of strawberries and cherries and mineral overtones. The mouth feel is soft, round and warm in sensation with and almost sweet and juicy impression of ripe fruit. The finish is long with lingering flavors of spices, well integrated oak, ripe sweet tannins and good acidity.
