Beautiful all around, with thrilling raspberry, cherry, crushed rock, licorice and forest floor on the nose, the 2011 Pinot Noir C'est la Vie Wenzlau Vineyard flows onto the palate with a rich, full, yet ethereal texture, no hard edges and perfect balance between its fruit, tannin and acid. Structured and age-worthy, give it a handful of years and enjoy through 2023. Drink 2015-2023.

Deep ruby. Sexy, complex aromas of black raspberry, Asian spices, cola and potpourri. Sweet, silky and palate-coating, offering intense red and dark berry flavors that show liqueur-like depth and power. Picks up a smoky nuance with air and finishes sweet and long, with fine-grained tannins adding grip.
