I was introduced to this wine from a friend and fellow wine drinker. Although the 2002 Pinot Noir was only a 66 case production and is probably not available it bodes well to check out their other wines.

This Pinot Noir is ruby in color and has aromas of berries, spice, dried flowers and hints of earth that are accented with clove from the oak aging. The aromas give way to a medium body that showed flavors of berries. Refreshing acidity and light tannins made for a gentle medium finish.
