2016 was another warm year with full ripeness in the fruit which allowed for the fruit notes in the wine to be a blend of black fruit (boysenberry, black cherry, blueberry and cassis) and red fruit (cherry, cranberry and raspberry). This brings more depth and concentration to the wine, along with a fine balance with all components getting along well with each other. This gave the 2016 vintage wine a synergy and much more enjoyable.
2016 PINOT NOIR:
The wine is rich and deep with flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cranberry, cassis and white pepper. The finish is the sweet flavor of toasted oak from French wine barrels. This wine will pair well with savory red meats. It will continue to evolve over the next 4 – 6 years.
2016 FIRST CLASS PINOT NOIR:
This This deep ruby colored wine exhibits aromas of rich dark fruits like black cheery, raspberry, root beer and cola with complex underlying scents of currant, cassis, vanilla and cinnamon spice. This wine is full of layered fruit flavors of dark cherry, raspberry, cranberry, and blueberry with hints of vanilla and Crème brûlée. On the palate ripe tannins and balanced acidity create a rich velvety mouth feel.
