Alluring black tea, singed cinnamon and shaved vanilla notes meld into the core of gently mulled red and black cherry fruit. Features both silky and earthy nuances through the finish, giving this range and length.

2015 Pinot Noir Les Alliés
$32


Using only free run juice fed by gravity, the Les Alliés 2015 is comprised primarily of fruit from the warm, shale-laden terroir of Leidenfrost Vineyards on the east side of Seneca Lake. Our top cuvée showcases the most complex barrels from the vintage, and as usual, Les Alliés is deep with minerality, spice and brawn. It ages an additional 6 months to one year in bottle.
