Tasting Notes

2016 Coast Grade Pinot Noir

2016 Coast Grade Pinot Noir

Deep, dark and dense in mountain flavors. Aromas are complex with cherry, pommegranate and orange rind. Very powerful!
May 2018 Wine Enthusiast, 92 pts   "...  red cherry, vanilla, rose petal and baking spice drop into a palate full of hibiscus, lavender and Earl Grey tea flavors, which all grow more complementary and delicious with time."
