  • 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
    Production Notes
    Although in some vintages we have harvested and fermented our different blocks and clonal selections separately, in 2011, I chose to harvest and ferment the different sections together. In general, however, we have usually gravitated towards a composite blend of the selections that brings together all of the great elements of each. Basically what we are doing by co-harvesting and co-fermenting is making a blend, it's just that we are blending grapes on the crush pad, as opposed to blending wines later in the cellar. When you've been working with the same blocks of fruit for over 30 years, you can do things like make field blends with confidence!

    I love this wine. Tasted at the winery and bought a bottle. And plan to buy more.
