2018 'Thistle Hill' Pinot noir

2018 'Thistle Hill' Pinot noir

Initially a burst of rose petal and anise jump out of the glass. Then, at first sip, married flavors of cranberry and almond coat your palate, followed by cherry bark and vanilla from 100% new french oak barrel aging.

SPECIAL NOTES
Thistle Hill is a neighboring vineyard that Cória Estates planted and managed for several years, though it does not own the property. It is named as such because before it was planted, the hillside was covered in Thistle patches. It is one of the highest peaks in our area and has a steep slope facing all four directions, North, South, East and West. The label is a topographic map of the hillside.
