Winemaker Notes - Ruby in color, the 2008 Pinot Noir is a ripe vintage with broad, dark flavors. Dark cherry, Chinese five spice with lasting nutmeg create an fresh, inviting style that is enhanced by a rich mid palate. Oak is well integrated and creamy tannins are structured by a mild pepper finish. The wine shows lively minerality and exceptional finesse from meticulous bottling and cellaring techniques introduced during the vintage which add to the wine’s aging ability. Rated 90+
