95 Points 2015 Pinot Noir Block 10-Whole Cluster

“100% whole cluster fermented. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Dramatic aromatics that excite including scents of black cherry, black raspberry, rose petal and exotic spices.

Crop Thinning as Harvest Approaches

With harvest surging towards us, it is time to thin the crop of grapes that is hanging on the vines. Why cut off such lovely fruit?
