The joy of Pinot Noir is its consistent evolution. Working with newer clones has changed the shape of material at hand for winemaker Todd Stevens. As these additions to the Pinot vineyards settle down, we see a more fragrant, more supple wine in our glass.
On the nose and through to the palate this wine exudes a particular elegance and grace.
Fine and silky tea-like tannins are interwoven with notes of black cherry, raspberry and doris plum. Tom’s natural “Moutereness” keeps the fruit from being overblown, the wine is underpinned with notes of the forest floor, wild mushrooms and a subtle warming spice.
Restrained use of oak frames this Pinot brilliantly without demanding the pallet and leading into a long and luxurious finish.
A red wine of this restraint is begging to be served next to a lean cut of venison or a generous bowl of mushroom risotto laden with parmesan and thyme.
Proudly unfined and unfiltered.
