2015 Pinot Noir Cuvee


SILVER MEDAL - Harvest Challenge Wine Competition

Winemaker's Notes

Cuvée is a blend of four different clones: 667, 777, 115 and 23. These clones were planted in 2009 on our winery site located on Los Amigos Road, Healdsburg, Sonoma County in the Russian River Valley. This four acre vineyard is farmed organically and certified CCOF.

Tasting Notes

Deep dark purple gradating to garnet at the edges makes this an inviting wine. Wonderful aromas of baking spices, cherry, cedar and rose petals. Easy drinking, fruit forward with hints of cherry, raspberry candy and vanilla. Long lingering finish that makes you want to go back for another sip.
