The bright ruby red color hints at the red raspberry, fresh red plum and wild cherry aromas with notes of white pepper and rose petal. The red plum, cherry and strawberry on the palate are complemented by orange peel, white pepper and a note of salinity. The overall effect is clean, crisp and brightly fruit-driven Pinot Noir with everything in balance.

Candied Bing cherry and fresh hibiscus aromas make this an immediately likable bottling by Jim Nantz and his team, while the star anise, gingerbread and sweet herb aromas add complexity. The palate is lively and fresh with more red fruit and flowers as well as cinnamon and wild chaparral spices, leading into a eucalyptus-oil-kissed finish.

Gunflint notes accent the sere dark currant and blackberry flavors. Hints of sage and thyme show on the finish. Drink now.
