It is predominantly 667 & 777 clones with Abel, 5 and 10/5. It was fermented in tank then aged for 10 months in French oak barrels (25 % new, 25 % 1 year old).

A lovely smokey nose of toasty oak blends with meaty, sour cherry, wild herb, cola, and dandelion & burdock notes. A supple, rich palate follows with an inviting, succulent rounded body and a restrained yet well-formed and persistent structure. A truly lovely Pinot Noir with incredible versatility on the table, this will pair well with most light dishes and meats, from picnics to fireplaces.
