Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

On the nose this Pinot Noir has dark fresh fruits mingling with herbal overtones of bay leaf and sage.  On the palate there are pronounced cranberry and tart cherry flavors that finish with earthy tannins.  Medium in body, this wine pairs well with traditional Thanksgiving dinner with cranberry sauce, Guinea hens, or other fowl.

Vintage Notes

With the perfect balance of warm temperatures and occasional rainfall, the 2012 season turned into an exceptional vintage. Bud break occurred during mid-March, about five weeks earlier than usual, and set the tone for the rest of the season. Rivaling the impeccable 2010 vintage, 2012 also saw a large number of growing degree days, ideal for fully ripened grapes and bold wines. Due to the below average rainfall throughout the summer months, disease pressure remained low, allowing fruit to thrive with little intervention.
