The aromas of this Pinot evoke memories of sitting around a campfire over a bed of pine needles. While smoke and pine notes remain dominate on the palate, there is a pleasant concentration of cherry at the core to offer counterbalance. A sandy tannin grip provides the bones to carry all these complexities to a lingering dried herb finish.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
