2016 Fleur de Lis Vineyard Pinot Noir 750ml
The Fleur de Lis vineyard is located on the west-facing slope of the Evenstad Estate and is planted exclusively to Dijon clones. This ridge-top four-acre vineyard ranges in elevation from 720 to 740 feet of elevation and borders the Mark Bradford vineyard. It produces wines of exceptional aromatic complexity and structural finesse.
Black cherry, lilac, and tilled earth aromatics entice. Hints of spruce and raspberry cobbler unfold on the palate. Bright acidity, integrated tannins and a silky mouthfeel speak to the vineyard’s west-facing position on the Evenstad Estate at high elevation. This pleasing and multifaceted gem of a wine will reward even further with time spent in the cellar.
