Lucienne Smith Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015
This wine artfully combines fragrant strawberry and blackberry aromas with earthy cocoa-dust undertones. Flavors of harmonious red and black fruits including tart plums are underpinned by spicy notes. Silky and richly textured throughout, this wine's finish is long and luxuriant.

Wine EnthusiastThere are elegant aromas of potpourri, purple flowers, rose hips, fennel, wild mint, blackberries and plums on the nose of this top-end bottling from the Hahn family. Hearty black plum and elderberry mix with black sage and bay leaf on the palate, where a chalky texture and soft mouthfeel complete the experience.
