Description

"Strawberry, dried thyme and fennel pollen combine into a compelling nose on this always reliable appellation blend. It's bright and quite quaffable on the palate, where strawberry, red-plum and anise flavors arise." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

An elegant medium-bodied pinot showing fruit flavors of black cherry, red plum, cranberry and wild strawberry with spices of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg emerging on a savory finish. One new twist with the 2017 vintage, this new wine has a component from the esteemed Sanford & Benedict vineyard as part of the final blend!
