Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

A beautiful crimson red in the glass.

Aroma: 

This 2018 Pinot Noir opens with red fruit aromas of cherry and rhubarb.

This wine is rich with vibrant strawberry, raspberry and plum flavors with a touch of spice. Well-balanced with bright acidity and moderate tannins, the finish is smooth and lingers.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

2018 was a near picture-perfect growing season that began in late February followed by a mild Spring yielding uniform grape clusters. Temperatures remained moderate to cool throughout the season with 2018 being considered one of the coolest vintages of the past decade. The cooler temperatures allowed for a longer hangtime resulting in an even and temperate harvest maintaining ideal acid levels and balanced concentrated fruit flavors.
