2015 Quailhurst Vineyard Pinot Noir
Bright, forward fruit aromas blend with spicy complexity from new oak to create an assertive first impression. A smooth entry on the palate is followed by medium weight and moderate tannins. Flavors of dark cherry, strawberry, and redcurrant along with oak derived notes of coffee, toffee, caramel, and cacao envelop the palate. Even as a young wine, the finish is juicy and smooth. Drink by 2021 for a more fruit-forward style and continue aging to watch non-fruit complexity take the lead.
