Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Blend of fruit (60/40) from upper/lower Yarra Valley, Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruits with spice, oak and floral notes. On the palate flavors of black cherry and raspberry with floral, oak, tea and herb notes. Soft fine tannins, good balance on long finish ending with notes of herb, earth, fruit and spice. Nice, will age well!

Outstanding in every way.
The dominant imperative here is the quality of the presentation. Expectations and delivery are completely aligned in this case. The magnitude in the price to quality ratio is exponential. Cola and cranberry on the nose leads into moderate, polished tannins, and sweet baking spices on the mid palate. Finishes with a hint of sweet fruits. Pinot lovers should look out for this.

Bright cherry color in the glass. Notes of red berries, cherry and black tea. Floral throughout and brings a soft tannin finish. Undeniably a Pinot.

Tastes Oregon-y! Very elegant, feminine, fruit forward.

Don’t let the lightness in the glass fool you This is a plenty big Pinot. Nice balance of bright cherry, raspberry and a peppery finish.
