2008 Estate Pinot Noir

The current releases begin with the 2008 Pinot Noir Estate. Medium ruby red, it offers up a nose of spicy red fruits and floral notes leading to an elegant, smooth-textured wine with a bit of structure and lively acidity. Drink this tasty effort over the next 5-6 years. The tiny Roots Wines & Vineyard owns 20 acres in the Ribbon Ridge AVA close to the famous Shea vineyard. Owner/winemaker Chris Berg made his first commercial vintage in 2002.
