Vashon Winery 2015 Pinot Noir
2015 Pinot Noir, Monument Farm Vineyard, Puget Sound AVA Island-grown grapes by Joe and Tony at Monument Farm Vineyards. This is probably the most fun wine. It is from grapes close to home and reflects the terrior of this special place. This wine is difficult to understand as it shows true Pinot Noir character, both in its cherry/strawberry fruitiness but also in its slightly vegetative quality, like a great Burgundy. Don’t let the light red color fool you. This wine is going to age and become a dark red wine with great complex flavors, for those with patience (and a wine cellar).
