Tasting Notes

"Brick red hue. Aromas of roasted strawberry, cranberry, boysenberry, rhubarb, pomegranate and cherry pie. Upon aeration, more characters release in the form of cloves, oak spice, blood orange, and fig chutney. These elements continue to concentrate on the palate, leading into lush, juicy tannins and refreshing acidity. This Pinot Noir finishes smooth, polished, and hedonistic. Enjoy now through 2024."   ~Bill Brosseau, Diretor of Winemaking

94 points, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Vivid ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of raspberry liqueur, spicecake and incense, backed by a hint of smoky minerals. Densely packed and alluringly sweet, displaying silky texture and a vibrant mineral core to the sappy red berry preserve, cherry cola and rose pastille flavors. Gains power with air while maintaining vibrancy. Gentle tannins build slowly on an impressively persistent, floral-driven finish."
