The grapes grown for this pinot noir all come from the Orofino estate vineyard. 4 different blocks of pinot planted to 4 different clones. Some of the vines are now 22 years old. The wine spent 16 months in the finest French oak barrels before being blended and bottled unfiltered and unfined. Classic pinot noir elements of cherry and spice with hints of earth are displayed. Gentle handling and minimal intervention in the winery helps to complete this beautiful wine. It will age gracefully if cellared properly.
