Our 2017 Blue Jay is sourced on steep hillsides. The aspect and light gravelly soils in these very rugged sites combine to create optimal ripening conditions. The resulting wines consistently present fruit of great depth and character.
Deep purple garnet color, this wine has overflowing aromas of dried hibiscus flower and smoked paprika with hints of forest floor and mint. The palate is dense and rich, packed with flavors of sassafras, wild blueberry compote, and baking spice. This wine is a full and intense expression of Pinot Noir, perfectly balanced with toasted oak and vibrant acidity on the lengthy finish.
