Birichino Lilo Vineyard Pinot Noir (750ml)
Winemakers Alex Krause and John Locke make wine in Santa Cruz, located centrally to the vineyards that they work within. They have access to fruit that is farmed by many third generation European farmers who understand the vines. They have also worked alongside some of the greats in the trade, such as California’s Randall Graham, Alsace’s Andre Ostertag and some small producers in France’s Madiran and Minervois regions. The diversity of their combined experiences is reflected in the unique personality of their wines.
Pronounced aromas of raspberry, morello cherries, rose petals and some smoky mineral notes. Cherry and red berry preserves on the palate with a pleasing floral, spice and smoky mineral quality. The mouthfeel is bright and energetic making for a wonderfully balanced and satisfying new world Pinot Noir.
