2012 Tilton Hill Pinot Noir 1.5L
Deep violet in color, this alluring and hedonistic wine has amazing extract and purity of fruit focus. Vibrant fruit aromas of wild strawberry and raspberry soufflé harmonize with sassafras, forest floor and East-Indian spice notes.
The very first bottling from our coldest estate vineyard, this magnificent property is perched on a ridge top near the town of Freestone, located just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. We have planted both heirloom and Dijon clones of Pinot Noir that produces very small clusters that encourage early ripening. The grapes are harvested at night, and then rigorously hand sorted prior to destemming into open top fermenters.
