"The 2017 Pinot Noir Running Fence Vineyard Cuvée Catherine is a gorgeous wine with striking aromatic presence and tons of energy. Red berry fruit, pomegranate rose petal, mint and sage overtones all open up with a bit of time, but the 2017 requires a bit of patience. Even in the early going, though, the 2017 has a level of purity that is breathtaking." (VM)

Winery Notes:
An extraordinarily pure bouquet of black raspberry and black cherry, laced with blood orange. A touch of brine accents these aromas and conveys a subtly wild aspect. Delivers outstanding intensity and density for a wine with just 13.4% alcohol. Very precise and detailed on the palate, with its impressive array of red and dark berry flavors energized by a soil-driven salinity. A compelling, marine-influenced pinot noir. - SK
