2017 Iron filbert vineyard Pinot noir
Aromatically the Iron Filbert is a very dynamic wine, continually revealing new profiles as the wine opens with nectarine, lavender, strawberry, orange peel, red rose, flint & black cherry juice. It has superb delineation and palate precision, with a light-plus to medium body, while packing more flavor than weight. The low alcohol allows the terroir to show every detailed facet and nuance. The tannins are very soft, supporting and integrating very well with the multitude of fruit, herb, and floral flavors. This wine will drink very well from 2020 to around 2030+.

There’s impressive fragrance on the nose of this complex, youthful pinot that is full of forest wood, bracken and red fruit with crushed flowers, lightly meaty notes and fine, brown spices. The palate has terrific detail and depth with fluid build and fresh, fleshy fruit presence. Plenty to like here.
