Bush Vineyard Natural Pinot Noir 2014
The purest example of the Pinot Noir grape is one that does not need any additives or other "tricks of the trade” to be what it is meant to be, sexy, feminine, enticing, ethereal - this wine is all that! Sourced from the north-facing hillside Bush Vineyard in the Green Valley AVA, on the nose the freshness of the fruit keeps you very alert to what may be hiding behind it. There is where you find the cleanest edge of minerality interlaced with notes of cherries, raspberries and roses.
The tangy acidity has a playfulness about it switching back-and-froth between sweet and sour, keeping you guessing about what is going to do and where it is going to take you next. This wine does not want to be with the "heavyweight champions", it excels and it is much happier in the "featherweight division”. It glides in your palate delighting you at every stage with balance, youthfulness, clarity and beauty!
This is a Pinot Noir for Pinot Noir lovers who appreciate finesse over strength and subtlety over power!
