2017 Pinot Noir Reserve
More than any other varietal, Pinot Noir is an expression of terroir. Terroir is a word bandied about in the wine world meaning the unique characteristics of a particular locale—essentially the taste of the place. And no other varietal reflects its sense of place more than the temperamental Pinot Noir grape. Our 2017 Reserve Pinot Noir is comprised of the barrels that represent our best lots of the 2017 vintage. A blend of Pinot Noir clones Pommard, 777, 115 and Martini, it is an elegant wine with aromas of black cherry, blackberry and cassis accented by notes of vanilla and mocha. The well-integrated oak blends with the dark fruit components on the palate, leaving a rich, full mouthfeel with soft tannins.
