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. A delicate, pale ruby in color, this wine opens with pretty aromas of rose petals, cherry, raspberry, and clove which carry through to the palate. A nicely balanced wine, with bright acidity and delicious finish. Enjoy!
Drink or Hold.
