2011 Margo Pinot Noir
Named for Colene's great granddaughter..
The first of our three Esate Cuvées and named for Colene's great granddaughter, the 2011 Margo Pinot Noir showcases aromas of red bing cherry, mingled with floral and citrus tones and hints of barrel spice and forest floor. Entering the palette with both focus and energy and revealing a firm but rounded texture, this wine shows good flesh with core flavors of cherry and raspberry shaded with hints of barrel toast. Well supported by a firm underlying framework of well intergrated tannin and a brisk acidity this wine finishes cleanly and succinctly and should benefit from short term cellaring. Consume over the next three to five years.
