Wine Maker Comments:
This bottling of Pinot Noir is one that remains more fruit forward than many we create. This vineyard is ideally suited to the development of a broad range of fruit profiles within Pinot Noir, such as blue plum and current. You will find them all in this wine along with notes of subtle spice and rich soil.
