This wine - she is bold and elegant, intense but poised - originated from a steep hillside vineyard high above the town of Occidental known for producing wines with incredible statement and structure. The clone most celebrated and coveted from this area is Pommard, providing tremendous strength. A small percentage of fruit was added from a vineyard located in an extreme growing area in Annapolis to bring out a little spice and verve.
This pinot noir is rich and round and full of dark berry and cherry fruits that evolve to reveal savory notes of spice and molasses. Great structure and plenty of acid and tannins help frame this wine, revealing layers of complexity and a long, rich finish.
Aged for 19 months in 100 percent new French oak barrels, she is a serious wine for the serious collector, and promises to be the centerpiece of any occasion. Only 100 cases handcrafted in small batches, $80 per bottle, minimum three-bottle order.

This pinot noir opens exquisitely in the glass and has a lasting finish. She continues to evolve in bottle and will drink well into the coming five to seven years.
