Flânerie Vineyard Pinot Noir is a single vineyard expression of our Ribbon Ridge Estate. Flânerie is consistently spicy, dark red fruited, savory and bold. This wine has beautiful finesse and a long life ahead of it, if patient enough to cellar.
Aromas are playful with bountiful red raspberry and cherry accompanied by baking spice, floral rosemary and thyme. Red fruits and baking spice are mirrored on the palate, with added notes of hibiscus, black tea, worn leather, and earthy forest floor. The finish is long and carried by harmonious young tannins and mouth watering acidity.

92 Points, Wine Spectator:
"Sleek and vibrantly structured, with snappy cherry and guava flavors that take on orange peel and green tea notes toward zesty tannins. Drink now through 2030." - Time Fish
