Ernie and Dena’s first Pinot love was a bottle of Dujac and their winemaking mentor was Cristom’s Steve Doerner. You’ll find both of those influences here. Partial whole cluster fermentation adds structure and exotic spice to the dark red fruit flavors and a little bulk to the fine, firm, tannins. This will continue to unfurl over the next few years, but would be a stunner with duck and cherry sauce tonight!
“Vivid red. Exotically spiced red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by notes of cola, sassafras, star anise and cinnamon. Juicy, impressively precise red fruit flavors are framed by silky tannins and lifted by a zesty suggestion of blood orange. Fine-grained and lithe, leaving sweet red fruit and candied floral notes behind. This sexy wine is drinking very well today but is balanced to reward another five years of aging.”International Wine Cellar 91 points
