2013 Dundee Hills Pinot noir
In addition of our traditional marriage of the Estate Rambouillet Vineyard and the Thistle Vineyard we are introducing our Estate Lillie's Vineyard into the blend. The inclusion of Lillies Vineyard in this blend adds a lovely black pepper note on the aromatics, in addition to the sweet tobacco, white flowers, cardamon, fresh herbes de provence and sassafras. On the palate we find nice weight up front carrying into the mid-palate. There are notes of earth followed by wafts of wood smoke. Although it seems light on its feet, there is a richness throughout its sweet core.
