Tart cherry and some herbal notes with a medium body and a supple, smooth texture. The fruit is a little under-ripe, but the acidity is refreshing.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

A savoury light-bodied Pinot Noir with earthiness, barnyard, tart cherry, strawberry, sweet spices. The finish is smooth with a cooling mint detected. Acidity is refreshing. Pair with planked salmon, lox with capers, pizza.
Tasted: May 2015
This winery was established in 1873. Finishes with anise and wet stone. Grippy tannins. - Community Wine Reviews
