This Pinot Noir has aromas of black and red cherry, anise and a hint of cedar. Characteristics of cherry cola, vanilla, and cinnamon are entwined with bright red fruit for a beautiful balance. Silky tannins with a medium body are prevalent along with great acidity, complimented by delectable fruit flavors.
This wine comes from select blocks from a single vineyard, which is SIP Certified Sustainable. The section of the vineyard is named Firepeak to pay homage to the extinct volcanoes in the area. Planted with various Pinot Noir clones, the low yielding, small clustered Clone 777 is always featured in this wine. A celebrated Dijon clone from Burgundy, the 777 is beloved for the dark color, dark berry and dark spice notes, and velvety richness that it imparts into the wine.
