2018 Leidenfrost Vineyard
Pinot Noir

raspberry - rose petal - spiced plum

A terroir of this pedigree will show its value in whatever variety is grown. The ultimate terroir is the one which delivers excellence in both red and white wine. The Pinot Noir from Leidenfrost is a phenomenal example of Pinot from a cool climate. It simultaneously carries the characters of the shale soils and classic nuances found in Pinot Noir.
