This is the first Pinot Noir we have made from the Quarry Road Vineyard. 2009 was the first fruit, although the wine defies the youthfulness of the vineyard. The wine is very 'old world' in character. The nose is a bit shy showing a distinct earthiness, with floral notes. Hints of dried cherry are in the background. On the palate, the wine displays good balance and complexity. Mineral notes are very expressive of its limestone terroir. Mushroom, violets and dark cherries round out the tasting experience. Long pleasant finish!
