TASTING NOTES

Powerfully aromatic suggesting cranberry and red cherry woven with earthiness, leather, and subtle oak notes. Silken yet mineral texture evolving into a complex, long lasting finish.


VINEYARD NOTES

A blend of vineyard sites on Keuka and Seneca Lakes. Pinot Noir on our Keuka vineyard was planted in 1958, 1974, 1981, and 1986 with majority Clone 7 and 13. These are some of the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the Finger Lakes. Vineyards on Keuka are shallow, shale-based soils which adds minerality, acidity, and elegance. Our Seneca vineyard is located in Hector, NY in the warmest mesoclimate in the Finger Lakes known as the ‘Banana Belt’. Pinot Noir was planted here in 2016. Temperatures here are a few degrees warmer than Keuka thus providing riper fruit notes. Soils on Seneca are characterized by deep honeoye silt loam.
