Wine Description:

Lovely expression of red summer fruits on the nose with Pinot Noir precision and purity on the palate, light in texture with fruit dominant and smoothness and more depth to come, a hint of new American oak well blended in to add some structure on the finish

Tasting Note:

The 2018 summer was exceptionally warm and dry and harvest began for the first time ever in late September, the pinot Noir from a single block looking so good that they could not resist picking the equivalent of 3300 bottles on the very first day for their still red wine. A small portion was ages in new American oak and blended in before bottling to add a touch of roundness and the vibtantly pure fruit.
