Pinot Noir 2014

Crafted from premium selected vineyard parcels in the Valley of Leyda. A true expression of cool-climate terroir Pinot noir. A wine showing bright red fruit of cherries and raspberries on the nose with elegant oak coming to the fore. A medium-bodied wine with elegant tannins and a lingering aftertaste of cherries.
