2017 WALT Blue Jay Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir - The Corners Vineyard
Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Focused and elegant with luscious cherry fruit and
Southern exposure, cobbled clay loam soils and
Due to its proximity to cool, steady winds from
the Pacific Ocean
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 sassafrass, 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.
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.
