Tasting Notes

This Pinot Noir opens with aromas of black cherry, cranberry and hints of cloves.

Flavors of mocha, cherry and vanilla are well balanced and the finish is long and smooth.

Food Pairings

The delightful medley of blackberry and spice on the palate complements gamey meats such as roast venison loin with blackberry sauce or duck breast with a black pepper and Bing cherry glaze. The touches of oak and spice combined with luminous acidity are a match for warm Porcini Triple Cream Brie with rosemary Focaccia.

The spring of 2017 brought record rainfall to break the six year drought parching California. The late rains provided plenty of water to the vines for a vigorous start to the growing season. Throughout the growing season hot weather kept the grapes ripening quickly, but plenty of vegetation from strong spring growth provided some protection from the heat. Harvest began about 10 days earlier than average. A couple of heat spikes during harvest created some anxiety, but we had the grapes harvested before the peak of the heat. Fortunately we were able to pick all of the grapes at their optimum ripeness to produce outstanding wines from the vintage.
