2016 Estate Pinot Noir, Nicholas Vineyard


2016 Estate Pinot Noir, Nicholas Vineyard


2016 was a warm and abundant year and the results gave us this beautifully rounded Pinot Noir. Creamy and spice filled aromas blended with ripe hints of black raspberry and fig. Remarkably balanced with a silky soft texture and juicy fruits such as cherry and plum. The warm growing season shows in the bold yet elegant structure of this wine. This Pinot Noir will drink best now through 2026.
