From its light salmon hue to its fetching aromas of candied strawberry, stone fruit, bubble gum and guava, this is a delightfully bright and aromatic wine. On the palate, a racy, mouthwatering acidity provides energy and length to the juicy red berry, citrus and mineral flavors, driving the wine to a bright finish with hints of flintiness and pink grapefruit zest.
2019 began with a wet winter and early spring that led to a later-than-average budbreak, and a fruit set featuring small clusters with beautifully concentrated berries. Dry conditions and moderate temperatures throughout late spring and summer were followed by a warm August that allowed us to achieve excellent ripeness. Our Pinot Noir harvest began in mid-September and was finished by mid-October, with the wines showing deep, rich colors, lovely aromatics and generous fruit.
