Crafted from Pinot Noir grapes on the Eden Rift estate in Cienega Valley, a remote, Pacific refuge located under the shadow of the Gavilan Mountain Range, the 2016 Estate Pinot Noir is vivid, energetic, and elegant. In winemaker Cory Waller's words, this Pinot Noir does a tense balancing act between red-tones and darker, fleshier fruits. Aromas of pomegranate, blackberry, cherry pit, rose hip and black teas complement the underlying tones of baking spices and chalk-like mineral notes. The palate is incredibly focused with a full body and soft tannins that support the long finish.
