2014 Ella’s Reserve Pinot Noir
A complex and structured Pinot, the nose begins with wild-plum, violet florals and strawberry underpinned by nutmeg spice and subtle tones of forest floor. The palate offers high-tones of cherry-pie and bright raspberry, while strawberry, soft mushroom and dusty tannins add an intricate textural element. The mid-palate is softened with a smooth blend of oak and tobacco leaf, while minerality and structure provide for an exquisitely long finish.
2013 Ella’s Reserve Pinot Noir
Refined elegance defines this multi-faceted wine. The high-toned nose proffers a true bouquet of delicate rose petal and violets underpinned by strawberry preserves and a subtle spice. The palate begins with freshly-picked cherries, soft mushroom and forest floor. Wild blackberry and integrated oak combine with a hint of tobacco leaf to round out the mid-palate. Graphite and bright plum allude to the appellation’s minerality, while fine dusty tannins give gentle texture to the exquisite long finish.
