A boldly flavored and richly proportioned Russian River Pinot Noir, bolstered by a judicious yet goodly amount of the very best new French oak, the strawberry and red cherry perfume folds into darker, blacker fruited flavors. Black cherry and dark plum are front and center, accented by the classic Stiling signature of cola nut and sweet baking spices on the finish.
Eric Kent is a self proclaimed “hyper-enthusiastic” wine geek since college (writing volumes of tasting notes and spending all of his disposable income on wine), it wasn’t until age 33 that Eric worked his first harvest. He had a single goal in mind: to someday hold up a bottle of world-class wine and say to himself, “I made this.” "Today I’m fascinated to discover that my goal is never-ending… the pursuit of making fine wine goes on forever. Each vintage brings new challenges and triumphs, more discoveries and deeper desires. Palates evolve, knowledge grows, new vineyards beckon, ideas flow. It’s really about the journey after all." -Kent Humphrey
