Tasting Notes
An age-worthy wine like Griffin’s Cuvée has structured tannins, with enough acid to balance and keep it fresh while aging. Whole cluster fermentation is a great way to incorporate tannin into Pinot Noir and at Griffin’s Cuvée at 9% has the highest amount of all our 2017 Pinot Noirs. Whole cluster contributes layered flavors of complex bright Marionberry and red plum with spicy tobacco and black tea. 30% new French oak contributes caramel and vanilla accents, helping to build body that supports structured tannins. A mouthwatering acid core lengthens the finish and keeps the mouthfeel vibrant and fresh.
