Pyramid Valley Earth Smoke Vineyard Pinot Noir

Mike and Claudia Weersing build pinot noir to capture the texture and character of its site, denoted here by a salty mouth feel derived from the limestone that underlies this vineyard. But here it’s the bouquet that really sets the wine apart. Delightfully exotic and alluring, it dances with violets, macerated cherries and exotic spice of all kinds. The palate presents soft, fleshy berry fruits and rather than fanning out on the finish it hones in on fine, mineral, chalk texture and taut tannins.
