  • Pure Pleasure and explosive fruit! Our Pinot Noir’s aromatics and taste are dominated by ripe berry and black cherries. The flavors follow with raspberry and hints of strawberry. The texture is rich and elegant finishing long on the palate.

    Wine Profile
    Tasting Notes
    In this wine I find very enticing aromas of strawberry, cherry, cinnamon and clove with hints of vanilla and floral tones. On the palate, the wine is very well balanced with a broad entry, a generous midpalate and a full finish. This wine strikes a nice balance between ripeness and freshness. This wine will benefit from gentle decanting, and will age gracefully for 4-5 years. Drink Now through 2018. -Winemaker, Chris Corley
    Vineyard Notes
    Our Estate Grown Pinot Noirs' shows red-berry aromatics, including raspberry and strawberry and perhaps a hint of ginger, clove and vanilla. The flavors follow with a purity of raspberry and overtones of strawberry and cherry. The texture is typically rich and with an elegant finish that resonates with berry and spice. The bright fruit and toasty sweet oak are balanced by soft tannins.
