The Eastside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir always shows a darker fruit profile, when compared to its Westside Road counterpart. Aromas of blackberry and black cherry immediately fill the nose, while dried rose petal, mushroom, mocha and cherry cordial further add to the complexity. Succulent in the mouth, the black fruit character and softly textured tannin creates an elegant offering, which can be enjoyed in the near term but will certainly develop well with additional bottle aging.
The Pinot Noir for this blend was sourced from four unique sites along Eastside Road: Foss Vineyard, Calegari Vineyard, Hunt Ryd Vineyard, and Lone Oak Vineyards.
