Deep garnet hue. Aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry, savory dried herbs, violets, and forest floor lift elegantly from the glass. On the palate, layers of blood orange and hibiscus are framed by broad tannins, coastal minerality and brilliant acidity that culminate in a lengthy finish.
Austere and elegant in its cool-climate, lightbodied way, this wine is dark and brooding nonetheless, offering a wild bramble of berry and rhubarb flavors. Firm in tannin and subtle in oak, it is dotted in black-tea and savory forest-floor edges.

A complete example of this grape variety, the bright and bold 2015 Flowers Vineyards & Winery Pinot Noir delivers satisfaction on the palate. The wine's generous black fruit and savory oak should be a pleasing match with pan-seared moderately-spiced lamb chops. (Tasted: November 17, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
