Ripe raspberry and dark berry aromas. The palate is full and soft with the concentration one would expect from clones with small clusters. Cherry cola and ripe berry flavors fill the palate.

Winemaker Notes
Our 2015 Reserve Pinot Noir came from young vines comprised of clones 23, and 31 which are known for their small clusters and high flavor concentration. This Pinot Noir possesses ripe raspberry and dark berry aromas. The palate is full and soft with the concentration one would expect from clones with small clusters. Cherry cola and ripe berry flavors fill the palate with hints of vanilla and barrel spice on the lingering finish.

Production Notes
The 2015 vintage experienced above average temperatures and a small amount of rainfall. Despite the lack of rainfall, the development of the fruit was ideal. Bud break began a few weeks early and very few frost incidents led to a slightly earlier bloom. June was sunny and warm followed by warmer than average July and August months. We harvested the fruit September 18th - October 2nd, 2015 in cool temperatures to ensure cold fruit at pressing.
