The lasting impression of our vintage is one of purity and elegance. It has an ethereal, perfumed nose of sweet raspberry and cherry, and an underlying root vegetable earthiness, perhaps owing to the small percentage of whole clusters. The tannins are sweet, and ample acidity keeps it nervy, balanced, and penetrating. It has proven to be precocious and ready to drink earlier than prior vintages. This wine exemplifies the best of a cool climate Pinot Noir.
