Winemaking Notes: This 100% biodynamic, hand-harvested, single vineyard Pinot Noir is aged and fermented completely in concrete eggs with indigenous yeast. There is no fining or filtering.
Tasting Notes: Dark ripe cherry and black fruits jump out of the glass with underlying raspberry fruit notes. A condensed and dark spiraling mid-palate shows layers of minerality and complexity, with hints of wet crushed rock (granite), sage, clove and blueberry. It is a rich Pinot Noir with full fruit and a long, generous, smooth finish.
