2016 Gabriella Pinot Noir

60.00

The Gabriella Pinot Noir was born as our grand cru bottling in honor of Jessica’s daughter, Gabriella, to be enjoyed on her 21st birthday, a French tradition that the family adopted. Since then, the goal of the Gabriella Pinot Noir is to create a wine of strength that is intended to age with complexity, refinement, and grace. It is comprised of three special lots, whole cluster for tannin complexity, and a higher than usual percentage of new oak for longevity. This was cited by Forbes as “Outstanding- If you’re a lover of Pinot Noir, don’t miss this wine” and won a Double Gold in the Oregon Wine Awards.

Jessica: The serious nose with rose petal, dark cherry, plum, and spice is followed by a structured and contemplative texture accented with minerality. Supple tannins lead to a long finish.

Gabriella: This is my wine. Smells like cherries.
