The 2016 Bin 6410 Pinot Noir exudes roasted hazelnut tones on the nose but it is closely followed by the signature aromas of blackberry, cherry, and raspberry fruit for which this wine is known. On the palate, the spice tones and tannins from the wood are supported with the rich fruit and a clean crisp finish. This medium bodied Pinot Noir pairs well with fowl, smoked meats, hard cheeses, and most any food from the backyard grill. Drink now through 2019.

The wine is a salmon pink tinted with rose-gold. Aromas of brioche, pear, and green apple pop from a generous mousse with persistent, small bubble beads. Our most recent release is our finest to date not by concentration, power or presence but by the fairy touch of understated delicacy and crystal clear fidelity of fruit notes of apple and pear. A beautiful aperitif style with a crisp acid finish like tiny diamonds exploding on the tongue.

Golden-straw color, clear and brilliant, this wine has complex floral nose of honeysuckle, white lilac and citrus zest. Once open, fruity aromas come to the fore, evolving towards toasted coconut and crème brûlée. Very lively on the palate, its rich texture is present, but also evident is its structure, clean acidity, and minerality. Versatility with food is a hallmark of all of our wines.

This wine is deep garnet in color and has brilliant clarity. The fruit aromas, decidedly dark, are of black cherry and blackberry and are tinged with hints of dried strawberry, clove, allspice, and vanilla. On the palate, the same dark fruits mingle with a hint of fresh rosemary and minerals. Bright acidity lifts the flavors and allows them to linger while the soft tannins balance the texture of this wine. Versatility with food is a hallmark of all of our wines.

Bright fresh aromas of apple and pear with hints of lemon zest and flint make this wine stand out from typical Chardonnay. The absence of oak allows the fruit and mineral flavors to mingle with the bright acidity and finish clean on the palate. The wine is refreshing on its own or pairs very well with fresh fish, cheese, and spicy cuisine.
