Tasting Notes

This Pinot Noir from Couse Creek Vineyard, a 30 year-old vineyard planted at 1800 feet in elevation is a unique, rare wine coming from the Walla Walla Valley. Showcasing a pretty aroma and flavors of cherry, kirsch, raspberry, and plum, along with subtle notes of licorice, oolong tea and tobacco. A nicely balanced wine, with a delicious finish. Enjoy!

Drink or Hold.
