Vintage Notes

2014 was very unique because of the warm and dry conditions that started during the early spring growing season and kept up into the summer giving us a perfect situation for an early harvest. The resulting wines are darkly fruited and quite concentrated. Though some of the wines have big tannins, the core of fruit is so sweet that they are balanced with moderate alcohol. The wines being in bottle for over 5 years has integrated the flavors well. Smooth, no bite in the acids or tannins and a nice lingering finish.

Tasting Notes

This wine has bright cherry and raspberry nose. Layers of cherry and berry fill the mouth with subtle spice notes. Enjoy the cherry notes on this expressive Pinot Noir from the start through the finish. The additional years of bottle aging are showing a nicely balanced very aromatic wine.
