"Lovely aromas include a whiff of meat along with ripe berries, oranges and Bing cherries. This is the winery's most limited selection and saw the most new French oak, adding a pleasing toasty note to the finish. There's a suggestion of coffee grounds, and everything is already in good proportion. Drink now–2025."
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Front Yard is delicately scented of fresh rose petals, cinnamon stick, forest floor, rooibos tea and bramble berry fruit with meaty/savory nuances. The medium-bodied palate offers fresh fruit expression with grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, with sweet earth and tea flavors coming through on the long finish. 44 cases produced.
