Made from earlier (7-10 days) harvested Foch from old vines, and fermented wild (both AF & ML) with 40% whole clusters. Blended with judicious amounts of Pinot, it is partially tank aged and partially neutral barrel aged for 5-6 months then bottled to capture the floral, herbal, juicy freshness.

Pretty tasty wine for $20, it combines estate Pinot Noir and Marechal Foch from vines that average 30 years old. The nose shows black cherries, black currants, anise, subtle spice and cedar. It’s soft and supple on the palate with more red fruits and underlying currants, plums and spice accents.
