WINEMAKING: After a rollercoaster 2015 vintage, we settled into an ideal 2016 vintage. Mellow, even weather led to normal to above average yields with tremendous quality. Wines from the 2016 vintage are crisp and vibrant. It could possibly be one of the top vintages in the last two decades.
TASTING NOTES: Aromas of vanilla, cassis and menthol lift from the glass. On the palate, an array of red and dark berries are met with a medium-bodied, silky finish.
FOOD PAIRING: Butternut Pinot Noir pairs well with grilled salmon, roasted chicken with seasonal vegetables, or a hearty beef stew.
WINEMAKER: Tony Leonardini
