An elegant nose presents, with complex aromatics of ripe cherries and dried rose petals, a touch of white pepper and a hint of alpine forest. Balanced and integrated, the palate comprises of sweet strawberries, cranberries, and traces of rhubarb. The wine closes at length with a finish of toasted brioche, a dash of caramel and fresh raspberries.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Slander aged ten months in 30% new French oak. Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with energetic kirsch, crushed raspberries and redcurrant notes with hints of sassafras, violets, dark chocolate and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with red and black berry layers, framed by plush tannins and great freshness, finishing long and spicy. 8,800 cases produced.
