One of the few places in Washington where Pinot Noir has the opportunity to be successful is along the shores of Lake Chelan. Thanks to the region’s somewhat higher elevation and the lake’s tempering effect, Pinot Noir has the ability to ripen slowly without a lot of sugar accumulation. This is a lovely example with delicate aromas of violet, red cherry and toffee, followed by flavors of ripe raspberry backed by a creamy midpalate and elegant tannins. This won gold and best of class at the 2016 Wenatchee Wine & Food Festival wine competition.
