Nuance and intrigue characterize the wine, starting with a dark crimson and a ruby rim but manifested by the aromatics: white pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, pine resin and crème de menthe. An entry dominated by a bright acidity, the mid-palate explores flavors of rhubarb, savory and a hint of wild strawberry with a long finish indicative of graceful aging.

This new wine from David Phinney (creator of the famous/infamous brand, The Prisoner) was aged for nine months in oak barrels, 44% new. Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2017 Pinot Noir Annapolis Vineyard rolls seductively out of the glass with a gorgeous perfume of lilacs, jasmine and fallen leaves over a core of black raspberries, pomegranate and tilled soil. Full-bodied, the palate sparks off a whole array of super-concentrated red berry and floral accents, complementing the intense earthy/savory characters, finishing wonderfully perfumed. 500 cases were made.

Ripe, full-bodied and filled with concentrated dark plum, black olive and wild herbs flavors that are well-knit. Chocolate mousse and Asian spice notes on the dense finish. Drink now through 2024. 500 cases made.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Annapolis Vineyard melds together the fruit intensity and overall richness that runs through all these wines, but also has a good bit of aromatic lift and perfume that adds freshness as well as balance. Rose petal, pomegranate, raspberry jam, mint and blood orange build into the racy finish .
