Medium-bodied, dry. Although it's made with up to 75% whole cluster fruit for extra tannins, this 8-year old Pinot still manages to be soft and delicate. Sour cherries, spice, mandarin orange and herbal notes on the nose and palate. Dry and mineral-laden on an earthy finish. Joe uses no cosmetics, sugars, or acids to correct his wine. The Pinot you taste comes straight out of the ground. Pair with chicken, veal, Charcuterie, and red meats.
