Tasting Notes:
Translated to English, Encanto Vineyards becomes Enchanted Vineyards, an appropriate name for a winery producing spellbinding wines. Like a fairy tale adventure, this wine takes us down the rabbit hole to a mystical world filled with bewitching aromas and flavors that set this classic style Pinot Noir apart from others. Aged in French oak barrels for seventeen months, the wine has taken on the bakeshop aromas and flavors of the barrel. Vanilla, cream, truffle and earthy spices blend with black cherry, licorice, cranberry, herbal notes and a dash of minerality to create a perfectly entrancing concoction. A beautiful light brick red color with surprising clarity, this Pinot appears more aged than it really is…..an aging potion, perhaps? Moderate tannin and perky acidity give way to a finish as smooth as the silk of a princess’ gown. Truly an enchanting wine.
