He combined a dozen barrels from those sites for this rewarding, spicy and fruit-filled Pinot Noir. Aromas of cranberry sauce, strawberry taffy, blueberry jam, fresh spearmint and California peppercorns lead to suave flavors of blueberry and pomegranate. Those lively reddish blue fruit notes bring a long finish. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
