Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Our 2011 3 Vineyard Pinot begins with perfect garnet color, as your nose is immediately met with elegant cherry, black cane fruit, and beautiful floral aromatics (at the intensity of a florist shop or big orange stamens). The palate shows low to moderate tannins, silk nap, a nice bitter accent on finish, and age-worthy acid. Warm a sip on the tongue - you peel layers of pie cherry, chocolate, sage, mint, rose petal, juicy summer strawberries, slight toast, and vanilla. Truly elegant, and a very appropriate representation of 2011 intensity and balance.
