Wine Description

The style of this wine, traditionally known in France as oeil-de-perdrix (eye of the partridge), has been made by my family, using Pinot Noir grapes, for 37 years. Producing this wine requires a gentle hand and a readiness to press the juice quickly once it reaches the desired level of color. It is a true-to-the-roots style that is not a by-product of a red wine. The juice is partially fermented in French oak barrels, which add enough rich texture and light spice to beautifully complement the generous fruit flavors.

    deep garnet; luxurious and dynamic aromas of ripe strawberry, bright cherry, and faint spicy oak and vanilla; complex palate with smooth layers of rich red currants and baking spice flavors with light smoke, earth, and leather; balanced, velvety texture and supple tannins carry the through to a lingering succulent finish

    A medium body with a taste of blackberries and cherries at the front. Finishes clean and very smooth.
