Jules Taylor Pinot Noir 2012
This wine is dark cherry red in color with aromas of wild berries, cocoa, and subtle hints of oak. The wild fermentation along with extended lees maturation in barrel have added complexity and texture to the lovely, bright red-fruit characters found on the palate. This is a supple wine with good weight and fine tannins.
