You have to look hard to find the varietal used for the 2009 Sophie's Edition. It tastes like a big red and we removed varietal designation from the front label. However, it is Pinot Noir through and through. The hot 2009 vintage came out fabulous. We've been chomping at the bit to share it with you.
It's difficult to put this one into words. It has aromatics reminiscent of fresh maple syrup and apple cider. The mouth-feel is lush and it finishes quickly.
This is definitely a great wine for drinking without distractions, such as: food, children, mothers-in-law, or even coat-tail riding friends. This is a wine to enjoy in quiet, in nature, by the fire, or at least with your closest of friends and family.
