Aromas of fresh red berries, dried herbs, sweet toasty notes, and vanilla. Rich and smooth in the palate - very elegant, with a long finish and balanced acidity. Flavors of strawberry, red cherries, herbs and vanilla. Made with 100% Pinot Noir.

Winemaker Dennis Martin puts grape grower Stephen Miller's signature on this wine, a nod to the importance of this historic vineyard. The wine shows bright strawberry and raspberry with touch of savory wood smoke as well as hibiscus-laced pastry and a pinch of thyme. Earthy sagebrush and wild herb flavors frame the palate, where cooked cherries and cranberries are spiced by cardamom and dried ginger spice.
