Description

Our small lot bottlings enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of pinot noir by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques.  The "Older Barrels" Pinot Noir is aged for 17 months exclusively in four-year old, or "neutral", French barrels. The absence of new oak allow for a more delicate, sophisticated wine showcasing purity of fruit flavors.

This wine shows attractive dark cherry, raspberry and floral notes on the nose.  Cherry and cranberry fruit is backed up with firm acidity, minerality and spice flavors on the palate. Enjoy!
