2019 Cherry Ave Pinot Noir

The flagship Pinot Noir of the Tawse Portfolio, the Cherry Ave vineyard consistently produces exceptional quality wines. The 2019 vintage is being hailed as a standout vintage for Pinot Noir. Generally cooler and wetter overall, a very warm and dry July and August assisted with ripening and concentrated fruit. Harvest took place later than usual to achieve optimal ripeness for the Pinot. The result is a fruit forward wine with notes of cherry, raspberry, rose petal, and cigar box.
