2017 Pinot Noir, Silvershot Vineyard

48.00

Our very own flannel-cladded Alexander Supertramp, this wine definitely lives off the grid. Immediate aromas of mountain cherries, fresh out of the ground wild strawberries, crushed walnut shells and trail mix are accented by cedar cigar box, fresh turned earth, dill, vanilla, and star anise. On the palate, this wine is very fruit forward but quickly backed by masculine lumberjack spices. Aromatically complex like a hunting cabin, this wine is most comfortable wearing flannel and confidently heading out into the wild.
