This barrel selection is a 50-50 blend of Pommard and Dijon clone Pinot Noir, all biodynamically farmed. It's spicy and complex, with cranberry, orange peel and lemon aromas. Those flavors are in the mix, along with black cherry, clean earth and dashes of cola and sassafras. A glorious wine, it should be enjoyed now through the late 2020s.
