This curated blend of Pinot noir from the 2017 vintage was conceived to run a marathon in the cellar, and to display the cool-climate signature of vineyards influenced by the Van Duzer winds. The texture is energetic, taut and focused. The nuanced aromatics are evidence of patient, low-temperature fermentations with proportions of whole clusters. The wine will become ever more harmonious and sublime as it ages.
