Product Description

"There seems to be a kernel to this wine that is reminiscent of how flavors come out of a lemon drop candy. It’s like you feel the hard candy in the center of your mouth, but the location where the flavors show themselves are in the dissolved, non-solid part like a halo.  It’s that kernel that replenishes the flavor pool.  This wine seems kind of like that (however with different flavors than a lemon-drop).  I’m excited about this wine in that it has the potential to make friends early on as well as to develop into something more interesting and complex in a graceful fashion for years to come.  Its message should echo for many years and as it does, it should change from the crystal-clarity of the initial message, gaining interest as it diffuses and resonates over time realizing a kind of self-harmony." - Winery Notes

Scherrer Pinot Noir 2010 Reviews

"Bright ruby-red. Smoky cherry and red berry aromas, with hints of licorice and spicecake in the background. Spicy and focused on entry, then deeper n the mid-palate, offering potent raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of succulent herbs. The smoky note comes back on the finish, which is taut, brisk and very persistent." - 92, International Wine Cellar

Scherrer Pinot Noir 2010 Tasting Notes

"While grown primarily in the sandy Goldridge soil, which tends to produce Pinot Noir with flavors of red fruits and orange peel, this wine also illustrates some of the deep, brooding black cherry character generally found in the region’s clay soils. It was bottled without fining or filtration, and should age gracefully for a handful of years. 680 cases produced." - Winery Notes
