Production Notes:

The 2011 "Prospector's Reserve", is a very  limited blend of five barrels.  There were selected by our winemaker because of their unique flavors.  The 2011 Reserve is a blend of the main clones from the olest part of the vineyard.  The blend is dominated by 2 barrels of the Wadenswil clone, a new French Oak Allary barrel of Pommard, completed by neutral barrels containing 777 and 114.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes:

This bottling represents a more expresive, even "masculine" style, of Pinot Noir from our estate.  Deep aromas of dark cherry, red currants, anise, and hints of herbal tones such as purple sage and eucalyptus, tinged with vanilla and dark caramel.
