Part of their "Blue Series," Isabelle, named after the birth of Jim’s daughter in 1995, was first top end Pinot Noir that was a blend from different locations, 6 in 2015. Aromas of berry fruits with citrus, herbs & floral notes, aged for 2 years in new French Oak. On the palate layers of gentle ripe fruit flavors of raspberry and cherry with citrus and oak wrapped in gentle spice. Wine has great depth, soft tannins, well integrated, savory, lingering ending with a nice mouthfeel. Very Nice! Tasting Sample!

The double thick glass would make a good weapon. Unfortunately this wine needs at least another 5 years until it starts to show its true self.
