VML 2013 Ivywood Vineyard Pinot Noir
Ivywood Vineyard is situated along a ridge line above the village of Freestone, making it heavily influenced by coastal winds and fog. The bouquet leads with delicate, floral aromas of lilac and lavender. Toasty notes such as baking spice, cinnamon and vanilla combine with mushroom and pine on the nose. The palate is well composed and integrated with hints of light cranberry, Rainer cherry, candied raspberry, sloe berry (tart berry), cocoa nibs, and savory mushrooms. The silky texture lingers long in the mouth.
