Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The color is deeper and more intense than our other Pinot Noirs from the same vintage, maybe due to its eastern facing slope. By nose, burnt orange peel, roasting herbs and preserved plums. By mouth, soft tannins, a complex mix of fresh berries and dried and preserved fruit with some anise and cassis.
