Winemaker’s Comments:  Wonderful by itself or w/ a filet w/ cherry compote.  Will also pair nicely w/ a wood fire pizza & will be an excellent addition to your summer BBQ

The 2012 Whole Cluster Pinot Noir is a refreshing as liquid fruit salad in a glass. This wine opens with lively red fruit aromas complimented by hints of anise, violets and a slight earthiness. Flavors mirror aromas, leading with a backbone of cherry, followed by sweet-tart strawberry and cranberry flavors with notes of vanilla and spice. Plush, fruity tannins and lively, balanced acidity lead to a crisp, lip-smacking finish. Meant to drink young. Enjoy now through 2015.

WS 2011 88 This light, silky Pinot exhibits a candied edge to the raspberry and watermelon flavors, finishing with a touch of nutmeg. Drink now.
