Hilliard Bruce 2013 Sun Vineyard Pinot Noir
Crafted by Greg Brewer (of Brewer-Clifton fame), the 2013 Sun is comprised of Dijon clones, 667, 777 & 115, from two south-facing parcels with maximum sun exposure. Sandy loam soil lends drive and power, as it jumps from the glass with exuberant dark red and grounded black fruit. Sun always showcases the heart of Hilliard Bruce vineyard.
Vivid ruby-red color with flavors of black raspberry, cherry and incense on the pungent, intensely perfumed nose. Fleshy and expansive, offering energetic red and dark berry preserve flavors, a hint of cola and a suave note of candied lavender. Picks up spiciness with air and finishes on a smoky dark berry note, with excellent thrust and length and supple tannins that sneak in late.
Regular Price: $54.99, Taylor's Price: $44.99
