This Pinot Noir has aromas of cherry and raspberry with a hint of root beer. It showcases flavors of ripe red fruit, plum and molasses along with silky tannins and a very smooth mouthfeel. The light acidity is balanced with a nice oak influence that rounds out this full-bodied Pinot Noir. The finish is long and smooth with lingering flavors of supple fruit.

The 2019 growing season featured a mild summer which allowed the grapes to ripen slowly. Heat waves and rain spells were limited, and the harvest was slow and cool. As a result, this vintage shows exceptional quality, elegance and the racy trademark acidity the Edna Valley is known for.
