Full bodied with notes of marionberry compote, blackberries and vanilla. Smoky, concentrated, vibrant acidity and full tannins.
Planted in 1991, the 50-acre Hawks View Vineyard offers the ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The eastern-facing slope and Laurelwood soils, combined with dry farming and hand harvesting, allow for wines of great character and distinction.
You know a wine is going to be good when you can recall the moment it was pressed and how fragrant the wine was that day. The bouquet never wore off this wine as it developed in barrels, revealing some of the best wine from 2015. The growing season for this vintage had a short picking window from September 10-23rd, and this wine highlights fruit from both our first pick and our last pick.
