Product Description

Dark, sweet spices of pepper and nutmeg mingle with lifted hints of ginger and smoke. Darker notes than previous vintages, but maintaining the bright, lifted acidity that pairs well with food. TASTING NOTES 100% Pinot Noir Ruby hue in color with a bright edge. A little brooding. Dark, sweet spices of pepper and nutmeg mingle with lifted hints of ginger and smoke. Deep fruit notes of spiced poached pears, dark cherry, plum, and cranberry interlace with savory notes of gingerbread, sage, and fire-toasted oak. An elegant and enticing combination of dark fruit, earthy notes, and spice, with depth and intrigue. Darker notes than previous vintages, but maintaining the bright, lifted acidity that pairs well with food. Holiday spices of sage, nutmeg, bay, and ginger. Very savory and lush, indicative of the vintage. Nicely structured with dark cherry, cranberry, and some peppery spice on the finish. VINEYARD NOTES Our 2013 Pinot Noir comes from three prestigious Sonoma County appellations where morning fog is slow to lift and evenings are quickly cooled by the Pacific Ocean—precisely the growing conditions favored by this grape variety.
