Produced from Black Pine Vineyard, a 4-acre slice of paradise on the Naramata Bench. The Pinot Noir portion of the vineyard is planted to clones 667, 777, 115 and Pommard.
A bright ruby colour that is lifted and fragrant on the nose, with a ripe sense of red fruits – dusty cherries, fresh cranberries and overripe strawberries. Swirling brings changes of complexity, with brown cardamom-like spices, crushed gravel and a light herbal edge from the whole bunch fermentation. The palate exudes the above fruit flavours, with a noticeable, youthful density, all wrapped in dusty, fine, savoury tannins with brightness in acidity that drives line and length.
