Tasting Notes


The 2013 Silice Vineyard Pinot Noir comes from vines grown on silica soils, as the name implies; it is a warm site that requires canopy management. It has a perfumed bouquet with dark berry fruit, white flowers and subtle licorice notes that open nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit. It has a soft opening, moderate depth in the mouth, that warmth before the rains coming through and delivering quite a rounded, red berry, easy-going finish that should offer several years of drinking pleasure.
