Shows the silky dryness and elegance you want in a Pinot Noir, with brisk acidity framing sour cherry, pomegranate and persimmon fruit flavors. Really grows on you as it sits in the glass, warming up and developing complexity. The vineyard has been quite a successful source of grapes to several wineries, including Blessing.
Tastes fresh and jammy now in raspberry and cherry flavors, with a cut of lime acidity. One third new oak adds a delicious coating of sweet vanilla and toast. Very delicious and distinctive, but immature. Cellar it for 2–3 years to let it mellow and knit together.
