2017 Harvest: The year started off with record rainfall leading to early, robust growth on the vines. Then summer started off average but quickly changed to one of the hottest summers on record! The vines and grapes were tested, but with modern farming techniques, the vines were aided and protected. In the end, due to ample water and sunlight, 2017 will produce another excellent vintage.
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.
