Our Kashaya Pinot Noir from Fort Ross-Seaview has become a staple of our lineup, and it continues to evolve and surprise us. The 2016 is an elegant, finesse-driven wine with copious character and a complex personality. The color is a garnet hue with hints of strawberry and flashes of brilliance. Aromatically, the wine is wide-open and effusive with notes of ripe, candied cherry, potpourri, Asian spice, underbrush and cloves. The mouthfeel is a smooth wave of layer upon layer of texture, carrying flavors of deep red fruits, iron, game and thimbleberry. The finest of tannins grace the long, resounding finish.
