2016 Quailhurst Vineyard Pinot Noir 1.5 L Magnum
Volcanic Jory soil and primarily Dijon clones contribute a soft and elegant red fruit while careful barrel selection adds a touch of cedar and spice. A perfect pairing for grilled salmon, pork chops, and mild, creamy cheeses.
Ripe aromas of strawberry jam, raspberry and dark cherry are complemented with intriguing oak spice, vanilla and caramel along with floral rose and brambly spice from whole cluster fermentation. A smooth transition onto the palate is paved with medium-weight tannins complemented by juicy acid. Red fruited flavors are matched with toasted oak notes of cedar, graham cracker and black pepper. A medium length finish is carried by both juicy acid and smooth tannins.
