Toulouse Vineyard Pinot NoirWarm, Approachable Pinot Noir

“Warm is the first word we think of with Toulouse, and for lots of reasons. In this vintage, warm earth shouts from our glasses. And, of course, we have nothing but warm feelings for our long time grower Vern Boltz. Warm brings to mind approachable, and this vintage surely is.”

Tasting Notes

“Aromas of oak spice and sandalwood, rose petals and even a touch of coffee on the nose. Intriguing in its complexity, with the expected Anderson Valley acid backbone balanced by soft but discernible tannins. Medium weight, with flavors of cherry and strawberry tinged with Christmas spice. Toulouse has been a standard bearer in the Deep End, beautiful on release and gaining in stature with just a touch of aging, this one will linger, offering long lasting memories.”
