2014 Cuvee Exceptionnelle Pinot Noir
Skilled blending of seven vineyards crafted the 2014 Cuvée Exceptionnelle, creating a complex wine rich with ripe fruit and enticing toasted oak characters. Aromas of ripe cherry, floral rose, marionberry, caramel, chocolate, tobacco and warm berry pie transition onto the palate. A bright acid entry is supported by full body and structured tannins. Flavors of dark berries and strawberry preserves are complemented by allspice and hints of black pepper. The long, elegant finish is carried by juicy acid and is balanced by food friendly tannins. Benefitting from the stellar 2014 growing season, this exceptional wine will reward through 2022.
