Pinot Noir Crindael 2018
Storied Raspberry & Spice
An ultra-rare Pinot Noir with only 400 bottles produced, this Belgian red is a treasure for the winemaker. Aged for 1 year in a single French oak barrel, the 2018 Pinot Noir developed beautiful notes of pepper, vanilla, and mushrooms with compelling fruit flavors like crushed berries and plums. A touch of spice and star annise give it lend it complexity.
