Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Notes of ripe blackberry, wild mushrooms and black licorice introduce our most old-world inspired Pinot Noir. A dense palate with firm structure supports the earthy tones accented by spice. The dark and rich fruit opens up again through the long lingering finish.
Vineyard Notes
100% El Jabali. The vines produced tiny clusters of concentrated, deeply ripe, perfectly balanced fruit.
Winemaker Notes
Fully destemmed but not crushed. Three-day cold soak; 21 days total skin contact. Aged for 16 months in 50% new French oak barrels from François Frères.
