Our 2015 Lancel Creek Pinot Noir has aromas of light cherry, deep spice, pomegranate, plum and toasted oak. Long, smooth tannins and bright acid combine with deep flavors of baked boysenberry and blackberry, black currant, cola and black cherry. The abundance of spicy structure, smooth tannins, and great acid make for a beautiful combination with the brambly dark fruit. This wine is showing so well right now. We recommend drinking it anytime in the next five years.
