"This Pinot Noir opens with aromatic notes of black cherry and baking spice. The soft, silky palate features bright, fruity notes of cranberry, fig and fresh orange peel, with hints of dark, brambly fruit, black tea and clove. Enjoy this wine with grilled salmon with cranberry-wild rice pilaf, grilled pork ribs with pomegranate-molasses barbeque sauce and tangy jicama slaw or Morbier cheese with a blackberry gastrique.
In 2016, the growing season in California was warm and dry. Following suit with the four previous vintages, the year continued to be an earlier, more compact growing season. Plenty of winter rains and a warm spring brought on early budbreak and a warm, fast-paced summer growing season. Another early harvest, 2016 finished a full 10 days earlier than average. Consistent warm temperatures through September rewarded us with incredible intensity and depth of flavor. In 2016, we looked to Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Barbara Counties to deliver complex layers of aroma, flavor and texture for a truly distinctive Pinot Noir." - Winery
