Tasting Notes 

Complex aromas and flavors of cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, and strawberry are laced with notes of jasmine, sage, and lemon thyme. The silky tannins and balanced acidity provide a beautiful framework for this elegant wine.

Cold soaked for 5 days prior to fermentation. Fermented in open top macro bins and punched down three times daily for seven days before racking to barrel. Aged 18 months in a mixture of new and second use oak barrels. The wine remained in contact with lees during aging to impart a richer mouthfeel. 

100% Pinot Noir 

ABV 14.4%
