harvest note

Overall, 2014 was a fantastic vintage, as the wines are soft, full of flavor, and very bright! Harvest began on September 12th, and finished by the 20th. It was a wonderful year but encountered a small challenge of high temperatures. Due to the lack of cooler weather, yields were a bit higher but were actively managed. Without these, the yields would have been too high, and an amazing vintage would have turned into one to forget.

tasting note

Deep Pinot Noir aromas of red fruit and wood highlight the nose, while the palate is delicate and long with balanced fruit and tannins.

food pairing

Pairs well with lightly seasoned red meats, chicken, turkey, lamb and root vegetables.
