Notes From the Winemaker:

The Pinot Noir grapes were hand sorted and gently destemmed to maximize whole berries. Fermented in a combination of closed tanks and open-top fermentors using specialized yeasts, the berries were kept cool and covered with carbon dioxide for “carbonic maceration”. This fermentation in the absence of oxygen creates the very aromatic, lifted red fruit and candy apple character in this wine. Following fermentation, the wine was racked to a stainless steel tank before stabilization and bottling

Tasting Notes:
Exhibiting an incredible vibrant burgundy color in the glass, this young wine has classic Pinot Noir fruit characteristics of red cherry, plum and wild blackberry dominating the nose, with underlying varietal attributes of briar and forest floor. The palate is surprisingly full and round with bright fruit characteristics and hints of cotton candy, finishing clean and pure with lingering acidity.
