Eric Kent is a self proclaimed “hyper-enthusiastic” wine geek since college (writing volumes of tasting notes and spending all of his disposable income on wine), it wasn’t until age 33 that Eric worked his first harvest. He had a single goal in mind: to someday hold up a bottle of world-class wine and say to himself, “I made this.”
We grabbed the last case our distributor had of this delicious Pinot. 830 cases produced.
Medium bodied, ripe & velvety red and black berry fruit, clove, decent tannic grip for a New World Pinot, long warming finish. Supple and generous without getting too big, the fruit and structure disguise the ABV admirably.
