  • These Pinot Noir grapes come from 50+ year old vines on average and is aged in barrel (10% new)
  • Light garnet hue with aromas of cherries, earth a d a hint of baking spice
  • It's dry with a light body, medium acidity and light tannins with flavors of cherries with a strong damp earthiness and rose notes
  • What I would expect from a red burgundy - complex, not as fruity as New World Pinot
