TASTING NOTES

A new vintage, a new label and a new approach to our Sascha Marie pinot. While last year's was all about finesse and structure supporting fresh and spicy red fruit, 2010 wanted to go big, dark and bold. The result is rich and luxurious with layers of dark cherry, blackberry and black licorice, complemented by hints of nutmeg and earth. On the fuller-bodied side of pinot without ever going over the top, tremendous fruit and great depth summarize this wine beautifully. 

If you enjoyed the rich fruit and intensity of our 2009 Stiling, then you'll love this wine! Decant it now or give it another 6 months in your cellar before opening the first bottle. Then watch the wine unfold over the course of the evening, and over the next 3-5 years.
