Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of vanilla, anise, Rainier cherries, strawberry sauce, and mint. On the palate, find marionberry, red cherry, white pepper, shredded coconut, and roasted macadamia nuts. Structured, with bright acidity in the mid-palate, and a very long finish.
92 Points--The ‘Heritage’ Pinot Noir is another outstanding wine made by the talented Kim Kramer. This opens with an enticing bouquet of red fruits with citrus rind and a touch of cola on the nose. There is a delicate, soft texture while the wine maintains a sterling acidity. Red currant, pomegranate seed, peat moss and wild blackberry cordial flavors all collide on the palate. Delicious now, this will evolve well for the next fifteen years. Drink 2019-2033 Washington Wine Blog, Publish Date: April 6, 2019
