High above the Valley floor, Tom & Marion Vail lovingly tend each of Calamity Hill Vineyard's Pinot vines. Communiqué has reaped the rewardsof this attention to detail with our 2015 Calamity Hill Pinot Noir. The intense color introduces aromas of black cherry and anise accented by smoke and leather. Their 500+ feet of elevation provide an elegant acid balance to the powerhouse Pinot of a hot year. Try with seared duck & marionberry gastrique for a pairing that could inspire one to write verse.
