This is an aromatic, approachable wine and an excellent representation of the acclaimed 2008 Vintage. Fruit forward with notes of plum, blackberry and the same bright earthiness as the Nicholas Estate Pinot Noir. Our first Pinot under stelvin closure.
“Medium ruby in color with an expressive nose of spice box, floral notes, and red fruits. Savory, friendly, and easygoing on the palate, this tasty effort is an excellent value.” Wine Advocate
