Aged in amphora for 8 months. Vinified without sulfur, no fining or filtration.

A Pinot anchored by grace and vigor. Aromas of violets and spice present on the nose. Velvety textures one the palate with succulent fruits and a character that beautifully combines the power and elegance celebrated in Pinot Noir.
