Displaying the beautiful high-tone fruit and elegant structure of the vintage, our 2011 Kite's Rest Pinot Noir opens with bright bing cherry, floral, sweet spice and a hint of saffron on the nose. The palate is noteworthy for its vintage-defying weight offering more of the red fruit and baking spice notes that carry through the delicate sweet oak finish. Cellar for up to 5-7 years.

Wine EnthusiastA darker, quite savory expression of Black Kite's entire vineyard site in the Deep End of Anderson Valley, this Pinot imparts a touch of cardamom spice and high acidity, with a dryness to the finish that gets a lift from that acid at the end.
