2011 Pinot Noir

2011 Pinot Noir

$70 Buy Wine

The 2011 vintage of our flagship Pinot Noir offering is concentrated and inky-dark in the glass. The nose shows freshness, with bramble-fruit and violets layered over spice accents of cardamom and clove. The palate enters with lively acidity, and quickly moves toward darker tones of espresso, black currant and chicory. This wine is wound tightly - very complex and concentrated. An hour or so in the decanter (or a handful of years in a controlled cellar environment,) before service will pay dividends for your patience.
