About the Wine
Those who know, know Pinot. And you can tell that Megan and James know by the layered complexities, unadulterated freshness and moxie coming through on this wine. It's absolutely a light and delicate Pinot Noir, but don't be fooled. There is much more here than meets the eye, as it were.
