Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep scarlet, with flecks of magenta through and through and a touch of lighter ruby around the fringe.

Smell:

Aromatic notes of smoked cherry and sweet tobacco leaf leap from the glass, with touches of dried rose petal, espresso bean, slight vanilla bean, herbal black tea, and a hint of sage present as well.

Taste:

Striking bold sweet plum notes greet you upon first sip, with concentrated flavors of a dark plum and blackberry compote framed by hints of cherry cola, European licorice, subtle dark baking spices, sandalwood, and coffee bean.

Finish:

Long and lingering, this is a hearty and complex Pinot. After a bit of decanting, the fruit flavors really start to sing and provide an excellent drinking experience.

Pairing:

Grilled pork tenderloin, prepared with a dried herbal rub and topped with a plum balsamic reduction.

What the Winery Says

Our thumbprints on each bottle represent the handcrafted quality you expect from this artisan winery. The wine inside represents our expression of Sonoma County’s abundance and agricultural heritage. This Pinot Noir demonstrates a refined elegance, with cinnamon-spiced strawberry aromas and flavors that weave with silky textures to create a smooth, complex wine from start to finish. Pairs well with a beet, wild mushroom, and potato casserole. Unfiltered and unfined.
