Tasting Notes

Expressive aromas of granite and cedar, and the enticing bouquet of fresh rose petals greet the nose.

Bing cherry, blackberry, and the slight tang of pomegranate dance in the front of the palate. The French oak is noticed in the finish with silky tannins and a slight maple sweetness that lingers.

Food Pairings

Mushroom lasagna will bring out the umami notes in this wine. Coffee cured salmon would speak to the rich mouthfeel and fine integrated tannins. A simple grilled halloumi cheese will play with the nuances of this tangy Pinot Noir.

During the growing season of 2018 there was an increased amount of rainfall during the spring followed by occasional heat spikes during the early summer. Harvest began about two weeks later than in previous years but was more in line with timing from the years before the drought. The yields were extremely high and the fruit quality was excellent.
