2016 Banshee Sullivan Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Mountain (1.5L Magnum)
This big, bold Pinot Noir is mouth filling, lush and aromatic, expressing its rugged mountain man roots, with aromatics of strawberry and balsamic glaze. An approachable wine with flavor elements of juicy wild strawberry and savory, meaty undertones. A solid, quaffable Pinot Noir with a lingering finish and structured tannins.
100% Pinot Noir
