2015 PINOT NOIR:
2015 was another fine, warm year with full ripeness in the fruit which allowed the fruit notes in the wine to be more black fruit driven (boysenberry, black cherry, blueberry and cassis) than 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 makes the wine a synergy and much more enjoyable. The wine is rich and deep with flavors of boysenberry, cassis and white pepper. On the finish is the sweet flavor of toasted oak from over-priced French wine barrels. This wine will wow when served with roast lamb.
2015 FIRST CLASS PINOT NOIR:
This is a luxurious, deep, rich wine from another warm vintage. As such, our vines were able to extract full flavors from our sustainably farmed soils. The wine team then spent two months evaluating the 900 or so barrels and then blending the best of the best to make this special wine. The fruit notes are mainly black cherry with a hint of cranberry. Then the wine develops in the mouth with floral, mocha and cola notes. This is a deep, layered wine that takes some patience to appreciate. The overall impression it leaves is a truly balanced luxurious offering that will bring tears when offered with fresh roast spring lamb. This wine will develop over the next ten years.
