Our Estate Bottled Pinot Noir blossoms into a bouquet of spices: starting with cardamom, clove and ginger, from there it's a veritable vinous spice rack, anchored by sweet leather and solid, supple black cherry. The texture is pure cold climate Pinot Noir--sensual and slinky with all that artful spiciness for good measure.
