2017 Pinot Noir Classique
The 2017 Pinot Classique draws marvelous aromas of camphor, Middle Eastern spices, ripe strawberry and licorice from the shale along our hillsides. On the palate, flavors of wild raspberries, camphor, blueberries and violets are balanced and delicate, melding with natural roundness.
