Battle Creek Unconditional Pinot Noir 2016

SKU 17134


Boysenberry, huckleberry and wild blueberry aromatics are accented by jasmine, lavender and sandalwood. The entry is lively and bright, showcasing the natural acidity of the Battle Creek Vineyard, complemented by the concentrated fruit resulting from our low yields in 2016. The mid-palate offers flavors of crème de cassis and blackberry cobbler, finishing with long, silky tannins and a hint of star anise. This wine is a wonderful apertif, as well as an excellent accompaniment of a wide variety of foods.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine's unusual rubber tube, stem, herb, sarsaparilla, strawberry and spice aromas lead to full-feeling red fruit flavors speckled with spice. It's backed by grainy tannins and comes off as slightly green, but there's still enjoyment to be had.
