A row of barrels in the Relic cave.

2019 Silver Eagle Pinot Noir

Gorgeously aromatic, ripe and sultry with a mouthful of purple fruits and flowers that envelope this  savory Pinot’s soft and velvety tannins. The deep, luxurious quality imparted by the exposed red clay in this esteemed mountain vineyard near Occidental is something special indeed.

This late release is maturing nicely, offering a sleek, refined mix of damson plum and raspberry coulis notes infused with red tea and sanguine hints. Reveals a pretty note of incense that lingers on the long finish. Drink now through 2030.
