LAVINEA, 2015 LAVINEA Pinot Noir Elton

"Dark red. Ripe red berries, pungent flowers and herbs, Indian spices and a hint of vanilla on the highly perfumed nose. Silky, seamless and appealingly sweet; a touch of peppery spice adds bite to the concentrated raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors. Takes a turn to darker fruit with air and finishes impressively long, displaying excellent clarity and velvety tannins that add shape."
Wine Enthusiast
LAVINEA, 2015 LAVINEA Pinot Noir Elton

"Elton's 30-year-old vines weave subtle threads of herb, root and earth around its tight wild strawberry, currant and red licorice flavors. The earthy details run deep, which supports tucking this bottle away for up to a decade."
Wine Spectator
LAVINEA, 2015 LAVINEA Pinot Noir Elton

"Plump and structured, with distinctly savory cherry aromas and precise raspberry, stony mineral and dried herb flavors. Tannic finish. Best after 2018. 215 cases made."
