It's our bread and butter, our heart and soul. It's our hero wine out here, and we freaking love it. Subtle, perfumed & elegant. Just 100% totally drinkable and awesome. Aromas of cranberry, boysenberry, cherry and earthy dried spices. Tastes like velvety dark fruits, with soft savory tannins. Pairs well with mushroom pizza, antipasto plates, pasta with duck ragu.
This is a ripe and somewhat reductive Pinot. It eventually opens with time in glass, revealing red fruit wrapped in lots of oak spice. The fruit on the palate sits a bit heavily and tannins are lean and astringent, emphasizing the oak particularly at the finish. This straightforward Pinot is wanting for a bit of charm and brightness.
Toasted herb notes and hints of chive mingle with robust cherry and plum flavors, showing off some charry elements on the finish, with dusty tannins. Drink now. 3,800 cases imported.
