2016 Vista Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir
Classic juxtaposition of fruit and earth create a wine vibrant enough to enjoy young, but with enough structure to age gracefully. Perfect with Cassoulet, Brie, and roast chicken.
Red-fruited aromas of ripe, dark cherry and redcurrant juxtapose with earthy, spicy notes of wet leaves, leather, tobacco, black licorice and oaky vanilla. The flavor mirrors the aroma, with subtle spice notes derived from whole cluster fermentation and 30% new oak barrels. Moderate tannins and elegant acid carry a medium long finish. This Dundee Hills single vineyard Pinot pairs easily with a variety of dishes like Cassoulet, roast chicken,and Brie with dried cranberries and fig jam. Enjoy as a vibrant youthful wine from 2019-2021 and watch it mellow with age from 2022-2024.
