Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition award: Gold medal

stoller-reserve-pinot-noir-10Winemaker Melissa Burr blended six clones of Pinot Noir from estate grapes to craft this luscious and refined Pinot Noir.

Then on the palate it displays abundant cherry, chocolate, earthiness and a touch of blueberry tannin to close out its elegantly tiered structure.
