Tasting Notes

Release Date: Spring 2008

From yields a mere twenty percent of normal, the 2005 Pinot Noir vintage is the smallest crop in sixty years. On the positive side, the wine is serious with red-black color, sappy aromas of plum, iron and magical Pinot Noir earthiness. Youthful and primary on the palate it exhibits stuffing galore. The extreme low yield of this vintage is apparent in the fullness of the mid-palate. This is a rare thing in classic Pinot Noir yet always a sign of future greatness.

With the small production of just over 100 cases, it is available only through the winery.
