2018 vintage notes
A brilliant debut for X Novo Pinot! Vibrantly all good things red, from perfectly ripe cherries to summer strawberries, hints of orange zest, an exotic floral show, a surging intensity and salted fall mushroom deliciousness. Purity of Pinot is on parade; a standout not just because it's new but because it's wonderful! - Marcus
On the nose, this wine bears aromas of maraschino cherries, lilacs, and peonies followed by lingering earthy notes of fall leaves, matsutakes, fresh tea leaf, pumpkin pulp, orange peel, and rye. The palate sings of vibrant red cherries, wild strawberries, and earthy fall mushrooms. X Novo’s lengthy finish showcases a brilliant purity and silky tannins. - the winery
