Pinot Noir 2012


2012 ~ 750ml
14.1 % alc./vol.

Tasting Notes
On the nose are rich aromas of spice, dried cranberry, cherry, and red currants, vanilla bean, hints of tobacco, leather, and roasted walnut. The palate showcases a perfect balance of fruit, oak, and silky tannins. Delicious flavours of cherry, cranberry, and leather notes follow through to a very long, complex, and elegant finish.

Winemaking Notes
The grapes were hand harvested and sorted in early September with 20% of the grapes being dried in the appassimento style. The wine was aged for 16 months on lees in select French oak barrels before being blended for bottling.

Wine and Food Pairing
A perfect wine to enjoy on its own or pair with roasted turkey with fresh shiitake and crimini mushrooms and dried porcini mushroom stuffing, roast chicken and vegetables, duck confit, cedar plank salmon, mushroom risotto, stuffed pork tenderloin, and rack of lamb.
