Having seen 20 months in French oak, the aromas of this wine are dominated by cola and rooibos tones. The light- to medium-bodied palate shows more fruit tones, with juicy red cherry and black currant taking on an almost candied flavor. Sandy tannins and a line of acidity give enough support to keep this Pinot in check.
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.
