2017 Pinot Noir Estate Anderson Valley

Our single vineyard Pinot Noir, which is grown in the warm days and foggy evenings of the Anderson Valley, opens with aromas of cinnamon and sandalwood. Dark red fruit enter, leading to cinnamon stick notes in the mid palate and a long dried fish finish.
We proudly offer this well balanced, Estate wine from our family to yours.
