"Moving to the reds, the 2018 Pinot Noir Estate was 70% destemmed and brought up in neutral oak. It has a beautiful perfume of ripe strawberry and raspberries intermixed with notes of spring flowers and spice. This carries to a medium-bodied, elegant Pinot with nicely integrated acidity and a great finish. It's a classy, balanced, terrific 2018." (JD)

Winery Notes:
Ranging from the very top of our property to our blocks overlooking Highway 246, five clonal selections of 2A, 115, 667, Pommard, and Swan comprise this 100% estate bottling. Steep slopes marked with limestone deposits, botella clay and sandy loam profiles. 30% whole cluster fermented.

Pomegranate, bramble fruit, and candied rose petals on the nose. Fresh strawberry, oolong tea, and persimmon on the palate. The mouthfeel is crisp and energetic.

Blend of clones 2A, 115, 667, Pommard and Swan.
