Relic Pinot Noir Kashaya 2013


Default Title

Winery Notes: 2013 offered the most rewarding opportunities for this site that we have seen since 2009. As the farming is now really dialed in, we are finding we can pick this site earlier with the same level of phenolic ripeness, leading to more vibrant wines with more grace, yet still with great depth and richness. Aromas of bright cherry, wintergreen, clove, wet stone, white flowers and cinnamon hang above the glass. The mouthfeel is finesse-driven and lithe with extremely fine-grained tannins allowing the classic cool-climate flavors to blossom.--Relic Wines
