Lucky You, a linked Palate Character!

This is a predominantly Tone & Backbone wine, but it shares structural nuances of Smooth & Silky as described in the tasting note below.

Tasting Notes
Medium-plus in body, with acidity and tannins that follow suit. Straddling Tone & Backbone and Smooth & Silky, this wine is remarkably complex in its youth, but will age formidably as well. The flavors and aromas unfold with black and red cherry, herbal tea and more subtle notes of rose, forest floor, mushrooms, cloves, along with a salty minerality that persists in the resonant finish.

100% Pee-NO NWAR
Pinot Noir is arguably the most revered grape variety in the world with origins in Burgundy, France where the best expressions can still be found. Pinot Noir is not only a tough grape to grow, it also shows miniscule differences in terroir arguably more than any other grape variety. Stylistically, it is generally higher in acid and lower in tannin but can vary depending on the location, and winemaking technique. It is very versatile with food, and shows a range of flavor from red and black fruit, floral, spice, earth, and mineral qualities.
