The Pinot Noir from our Rust Rock Vineyard shows highly distinctive characteristics vintage after vintage. The outstanding flavors and textural qualities of this unique terroir prompted us to create this single-lot bottling. 

The nose begins with intense blackberry and black cherry fruit balanced with pinot spice.  The mouth carries this fruit into a generous mouthfeel and texture layered over some forest floor and cedar.  Some restrained toasty oak rounds out the package that keeps giving fruit all the way through the long bright finish.

“Vibrant and deeply flavored, featuring a balanced mix of raspberry, cherry and tangerine flavors, pure and refreshing. The minerally finish offers sandalwood notes.” - Wine Spectator
