This Pinot Noir exhibits a rich and complex blend of red plum, strawberry and red berry fruit characters. The silky and balanced palate is complimented by the soft spicy tannins that lingers on. Juicy and delicious wine to be enjoyed on any occasion.

A portion of the fruit was hand-picked and was plunged in small open vats until completion of ferment. The remainder of the fruit was machine picked and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The ferment was pumped over twice a day with temperatures of up to 32 degrees being reached to extract the color and tannins for the backbone of the wine.
Pairs well with beef, veal, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.
