2015 Estate Pinot Noir, Nicholas Vineyard


92 Points Wine Spectator     91 Points The Prince of Pinot

Our 2015 Nicholas Vineyard Pinot Noir is powerful with a concentrated core that is driven by berry and spice notes. There is an abundance of dark fruit aromas such as black raspberry, boysenberry and dark cherry, which are underlined by spice, toasted oak and earthy notes. On the pallet this wine is distinctive with structured tannins, ripe fruit and forest floor flavors. Full bodied with great weight and complexity, this Pinot Noir will drink best now through 2025.
