2011 L'Iris Reserve Pinot Noir

 

Our Reserve Pinot noir, L'iris, is a wine of grace and depth that exemplifies our commitment to age-worthy wines, while respecting the vineyard’s terroir.  We hand-select our finest blocks of Pinot noir to age in French oak barrels for 16 months.  This elegant wine has a backbone of acidity and a spicy core layered with brambly, earthy notes and a long, rich finish mirroring the nuances of the Pinot noir grape itself.

Press Highlights:

90-91 Points - PinotFile “Moderately light, reddish purple color in the glass. The nose leads with aromas of cherry, smoke and piney oak. Very elegant and highly appealing on the palate in a mid-weight style with plenty of fresh cranberry and black cherry fruit flavor, and a compliment of spice. Soft tannins make for easy accessibility.”
