 This special bottling was fermented 100% whole cluster (Lucille Ball style), stomped by our own Amanda! This "Methode Ancienne" style of winemaking gives the wine even more structure and intensity with broad shoulders; amazing!

Tasting Notes

This wine is extremely complex; aromas of cranberry, blackberry, sandalwood, caramel, dark chocolate, mineral, citronella and freshly turned earth capture the senses. The structure is deep, big, taut, rich and luxurious with focused persistent tannins; there’s a nifty ying-yang here with bright fruit crispness and deep, primal, earthy, firmness. This Pinot is a good candidate for a rich steak or venison entrée.
