Heavier than a typical Pinot noir. More complex in flavor and notes of preserves and jam. Very smooth and clean after taste. Not very dry or sweet.

I recently had a 2015, thought it needed more time so I searched for an older vintage and found a 2012, their debut vintage of Two Creeks Pinot Noir. A blend from 2 different Vineyards (43% Apple Barn & 57% Annahala) and aged for 10 months in French oak (38% new). Aromas red and dark berry fruits with complex, soft earthy spice notes. On the palate juicy cherry and strawberry flavors, rich and complex with a great mouthfeel, integrated spice and oak. Smooth tannins with good balance with acidity on a lingering finish, an outstanding wine that I would have to say is perfect now!

I wish I have waited couple more years before opening it because I feel like it's not fully age for a Pinot noir. Blueberry note, smooth. Overall great wine but have not reached its full potential.

Strawberry, cherry and raspberry with French Oak. Sophisticated and smooth.

A luscious full bodies Pinot. might not satisfy the expected taste of a Pinot but if you are open - it can expand the horizon for what a Pinot is
