The second round of MTGA Pinot Noir is a BEAST. We have found that the 2016 vintage offered immense structure and flavor, even with this cool climate vineyard site. This is a Pinot Noir that is built to last. While enjoyable now (as long as you like a nice kick to the tastebuds) feel free to save a few bottles for the long-game.
With deeper dark and red fruit characteristics the acidity on this bad boy still shines through. Unfined and unfiltered this Pinot Noir retains all of the awesome characteristics provided by the four clones that made it into the final blend.
