Tasting Notes
I find attractive aromas of dark, ripe blackberry and raspberry with undertones of cola and cinnamon. On the palate, the wine introduces itself with confidence followed by a round, full body in the mid-palate. For a Pinot Noir bursting with vim and vigor, I find it nicely framed by its elegant acidity. This robust expression of Pinot Noir is true to its grapes. The wine displays deep, dark ripe berry flavors on the palate through to a long and lingering finish. Drink now through 2025.
Vineyard Notes
At the time of this writing, the 2016 vintage represents the fifth consecutive year of phenomenal quality wines from our vineyards and across Napa Valley. The fruit displayed great purity and intensity, which translated quite well through to the finished wines.
Production Notes
We fermented in small bins, gently punching down, and pressing at dryness, prior to racking to barrels for secondary fermentation and aging to maintain as much of the natural balance of our Block II Clone 777 Pinot Noir as we could.
Food Pairing Notes
Maple and Soy Glazed Salmon over Mixed Berry Couscous
Other Notes
We suggest decanting 30 minutes prior to serving.
