Bright red fruit aromatics with hints of raspberry and strawberry. Thick and rich on the palette, silky smooth in texture. Drink now or cellar for 5 to 7 years. A key feature of the Burke vineyard is careful stressing of the vines by spacing them tightly. The vines react by deepening their roots to increase access to nutrients, and the result is very concentrated, rich flavors and textures in the fruit.

100% Dijon Clone Pinot Noir 777. Compact cluster, small berries, low-yielding, strong and intense color due to thick skins and higher seed count, very aromatic with dense and complex black fruit flavors (black cherry, cassis), with leather, tobacco, and earthy notes.
