Owsley Pinot Noir

2015 Pinot Noir

As this latest vintage of Owsley is poured into your glass, you will notice the beautiful, bright garnet color. This classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is elegantly structured and focused with a nice depth of flavors full of juicy red fruits, warm barrel spice and dark chocolate. The finish is long and textured with fine tannins and bright acidity.
