Lily Gil Pinot Noir 2014
This wine demonstrates the remarkable finesse that Pinot Noir can deliver. A blend of five of the most highly prized blocks found in our Edna Valley estate vineyards each barrel in the blend is hand selected for the delicate character and inviting texture. Fermented in small open top tanks and hand punched down, this wine was aged for 11 months in French oak barrels.
The color of red cherry with aromas of raspberry, red cherry, plum and slate that signal classic Pinot Noir character. Layers of dried cranberry, cherry and plum reveal notes of brown spice including cinnamon and cardamom are evident from the start while a light salinity lingers on the finish. This wine evokes a trusted finesse which is evident in the balance acidity and in the refined tannin structure.
