2015 Kuleto Cuvee Pinot Noir
This fruit comes from our friend and long-time Inner Circle member, Pat Kuleto. Grown high above Lake Hennessey, the winds blow up over the water as the evening cools and blankets this extraordinary one acre in a chill that comforts these babies to sleep. They appear quite happy from the wine they produce, unlike anything in the Russian RIver or Sonoma Coast. The nose is fruity with a hint of flowers. When it hits the palate, we taste ripe red fruit, complemented by balanced acid. Then the floral notes show of lavendar and lilac. These carry on to the finish, so surprising and delicate. Then they linger with a delicious finish.
