Tasting Note:March 16, 2019

Medium garnet red with a touch of bricking. Classic Pinot nose, delicious for a 2011 vintage. Aromas of twigs, strawberries, cherries, violets and a touch earthy. Medium tannins (5.5/10) and balanced acidity (6/10) with a medium body. Well rounded palate with dried cherries, earthy and some strawberries. Long and lingering finish.

Tasted at the Taste of Yountville Grand Cru Tasting. Made of 100% Pinot Noir from the Rio Vista Vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills AVA. Aged for 12 months in 100% new French oak.
