Tasting Notes:
“Karmen Isabella sparkles through the glass with a beautiful ruby red intensity.  Aromas of a bright spring floral garden rushes through the nose with every hardy smell into the glass.  Red cherry, raspberry and Santa Rosa plum are among the flavors that fill your mouth which is what you would expect from a Russian River Pinot Noir.  The soft and silky tannins are long and lingering holding your attention until you pick up the feel of  just enough acidity to  provide  balance and  structure giving the pinot great body.

De-stemmed, cold soaked, open top fermentation, three punch downs daily,   100 % malolactic Fermentation.
