2016 Weber Vineyard Pinot Noir
While the 2015 vintage was once of the most delicate renditions of Weber I have ever produced, 2016 is by far the darkest and most intense wine I have ever made from this site. While big by Weber standards this wine still brings all of the elegance, nuance and finesse that fans of this site have come to love and enjoy. The higher toned aromatics and lithe structure are all there coupled with a more robust and opulent dark red fruit profile. The best Weber I have produced to date.

Lurid ruby-red. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes raspberry and cherry liqueur and candied flowers, with incense and potpourri nuances adding complexity. Appealingly sweet and energetic on the palate, offering intense red fruit, spicecake, mocha and lavender pastille flavors that steadily deepen on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and floral lift on an impressively long, seamless finish that features harmonious tannins and resonating red fruit character.
