The cooling influence of the Pacific gives this wine a crystalline, crushed wild strawberry and herby red cherry perfume that is intoxicating. Then comes the wild thyme, redwood duff, mushroom, strawberry pulp, and baking spices. A gorgeous little Pinot.
Broken Spur is our project dedicated to red wine value. Sourcing fruit from top vineyards throughout California, the wines are priced at such a level that essentially they taste like another rung or two up the ladder in terms of flavor and style points. They're meant to be drunk young and often, and inspire more in the way of conviviality than philosophical musings. They're basically liquid reminders that wine (and those who love it) needn't be taken too seriously. Dig in your spurs, get your corkscrew ready and be prepared to save a buck or two.
