2012 NIRVANA Pinot Noir
The 2012 NIRVANA is a selection of the best barrels from the vineyard. The wine was aged for 30 months in the barrel and another year in the bottle. The wine is ready to drink now or can be cellared for another 5 to 7 years. The flavors in the wine are a blend of flowers, fruit, spice and earth. The aroma is a bouquet of hibiscus and rose, dark cherry and raspberry, clove and cedar, mushroom and bramble. Vanilla, orange rind and pomegranate aromas lace the central bouquet. The wine is smooth on the palate with soft tannins. Strawberry, cherry, cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry flavors explode on the palate spiced with cinnamon, clove, sage and tarragon. After you sip the wine you can taste the tannins at the back of your mouth evoking the soil where the grapes are grown. The wine has great balance of flavor, tannins and acidity creating a lingering and memorable finish.
