Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) With this lovely wine we took advantage of an opportunity to expand our horizons with pinot noir.Two of our vineyards in Sonoma Coast region this year yielded fruit with larger than normal berries but very nice flavors.We chose to remove a portion of the juice from the tanks prior to fermentation.We kept this apart,gave it a cool fermentation of its own,and this wine is the result.With delicate floral aromas underscored by a hint of toastiness,and a palate that is crisp and light,this is a blush wine that can happily accompany seafood,cheese plates or light pasta dishes.
