"The 2017 Pinot Noir was aged for 12 months in mostly used French oak (11% new). It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. This is the winery's standard blend from four vineyards on Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. This is the first year that fruit grown in the Heart & Hands Estate vineyard was included in this wine, said co-owner Susan Higgins. Fresh, respectably concentrated and lively, this has darker fruits, including black cherries and a touch of bitter plums. Intense, built to age and very focused, this could use another year or two in the cellar. It should hold for a decade or so thereafter. It should become steadily more expressive as it ages."
"Elegant wine crafted from grapes grown on 4 Finger Lakes vineyards, including our limestone-rich estate vineyard. Hints of dark cherries tempt the senses, followed by rich plums and currants and more cherry notes on the palate, and a long finish with medium-firm tannins."~Winery Notes
