The winery produces two old-vine Pinots from estate-grown fruit; this shows a touch more concentration and complexity. Black-cherry cola, smoke, earth, tobacco and even a faint whiff of the barnyard all mingle, leading the taster down an engaging flavor trail that winds gracefully into a lingering finish. Drink now through 2022.
