#Tobiano is our "fun" wine, more for enjoying than scrutinizing. The 2016 has an almost Beaujolais-like, gulpable quality that would make it completely at home with bistro fare or a picnic. The kind where you toss a checkered cloth and a baguette into the basket on your bicycle and ride to your favorite spot. It tastes bright, light red. It smells fresh, a mix of herbs, flowers, and berries that are not too sweet. Fresh, tart and lively on entry. There is no discernible oak to get in the way. It is aged primarily in barrels, but most of them older and aromatically neutral. A bit of a departure from our earlier Pinots in that it’s squarely in the lean, nervy camp. This is the 2016 vintage - our winemaking response to what the vines gave us.

"Cherry aromas dominate the nose on this medium-bodied Pinot with medicinal leanings. A bright youthful palate is more fresh and easy than complex, while this tastes of lightly spiced raspberry, plum and cherry. A juicy appealing finish includes touches of oak and cocoa."
