Stone Lion Pinot Noir 2015
This blend of small lots from separate blocks on our Edna Ranch estate vineyard is named after the stone lion, a statue discovered in a section of Moretti vineyard. The name is a reflection of the earthiness, strength, and smoothness of this elegant Pinot Noir. This wine was aged for 9 months in French oak barrels with approximately 30% of them being new.
Deep red cherry color with a slight blue hue, welcomes the senses with primary aromas of black cherry, ripe red plum with notes of graphite and allspice. There are underlaying layers of bramble, forest floor and cedar. On the palate, there are earthy layers of green tobacco, wet stone and cigar box featuring velvety tannins with a round finish. We look forward to pairing this wine with a wide variety of savory foods for years to come.
