This is not anything like Burgundy, yet a wine that defies tradition and has elevated the way Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir should taste. Dark violet in color with aromas of dark fruit and toasted brioche with a hint of baking spice to round out the nose. A full palate that is expansive then segues to a chalky firmness with rounded edges. Blackberry, boysenberry, French toast, creamy vanilla, black pepper, and cinnamon dance on the palate. Perfectly balanced with a finish that will linger with a hint of ripe but sour cranberry.
