The Big Pig Vineyard, for which this wine is named, is the producer's estate vineyard, a site planted to four Pinot clones. Altogether it's stunning, a vibrant mix of funky lavender and licorice that's big in both flavor and presence on the palate, with a grip of soft tannins. The finish is concentrated in black cherry, with a seasoning of Asian spice.
