2018 Bellows Vineyard
Pinot Noir

morello cherry - black pepper - strawberry tea

The finesse that we get from our estate Pinot Noir makes sense given the extremely low yields we dealt with in 2018. The grapes were immaculate, a rarity in this vintage. This wine is already rivaling the Leidenfrost Pinot in our portfolio of wines—an interesting contest between two sites that are close in distance but far in micro-climate.
