2018 Cortada Alta Dijon Clones Pinot Noir
This special barrel selection of predominantly Dijon clones greets you with an opaque, dark color, and a complex nose of mountain cranberries, anise, cherry blossoms, molasses and subtle, dried rosemary. On the palate, a black raspberry fruit core is framed by robust and textured tannins. Balanced acidity accented by seasoned French oak and fresh coconut. A dense mouthfeel is rounded out by delicate vanilla on the incredibly long finish.
