AVNI Pinot Noir reflects the complex flavor profile of Eola-Amity Hills fruit, born of volcanic soils on hillside vineyards and sourced primarily from neighbors in Hopewell. The wine is medium bodied, complex with floral, mineral and red cherry, black plum fruit tones, and a long silky finish. The treatment of the fruit at harvest reflects the winemaking philosophy of Dominique Lafon.
AVNI is a Stone family name, which means “of rock” or “stone.”
