A Pinot Noir from Walla Walla Valley is a rare find, and this vintage holds true to both the varietal and the terroir of our valley. Opens with bold aromas of garam masala, black cherry, tobacco leaf, and red currant with hints of butterscotch and caramel. Medium bodied yet rich on the palate with mouthwatering acidity, the flavors of spicy cranberry, orange peel, black pepper, brambleberry, and Earl Grey tea lead to an exceptionally long, satisfying finish.
Drink or Hold.
