2018 "Black Sheep" Four Barrel Select Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley
Black Sheep. There's always one in the family. Was it you? If so, you'll relate. These barrels just had to be different, showing irreverence and disregard for the pack. In a good way. Our cooperage provided the stage with superior tight-grain french wood from the best forests in the republic. This outcast is brutish, with a deep, inky garnet color and a nose of mocha, lavender, and sweet tobacco. The palate reveals rich flavors of royal cherry, freshly roasted coffee bean and toasted baking spice. You might not share this wine, do not feel sheepish.
