2013 Hilltop Ranch Pinot Noir
Deep, dark ruby in color. Aromas of white pepper, butter, dark cherry and plum. Dark fruit and toasty oak mingle on the palate. This wine is rich but at the same time has a very pleasant mouthfeel and long finish. These vines were 12 years old in this vintage and they are really displaying a distinctive character in this wine (a character that we are also seeing in successive vintages). A very exciting turning point for this small vineyard site!
