2014 pinot noir van der kamp vineyard
A medium ruby color introduces a complex bouquet dominated by aromas of ripe raspberries, white flowers, blood orange, and smoked meats. Similar flavors decorated with a tar or resin characteristic sweep across the palate. Chewy tannins and a mineral laced finish hint at its mountain side origins. Designed to age this wine should provide exceptional drinking experiences for the next 8 or more.
