Winemaker Tasting Notes
The 2016 Carter displays enticing aromas of fresh violet, red raspberry, wild cherry and barrel spice. The palate is intense and lengthy, showing vibrant red cherry, cran-raspberry, red currant and plum. Wonderful, fine-grained tannins arrive on the finish.

Tendril wines are made “low and slow,” just like great food: we give them time to reach their full potential at the winery, aging 16 months minimum in barrel and 6-18 months more in bottle before release. If you prefer aging, 3-15 years from vintage date is ideal for our single vineyard Pinots. Serve at 58-62F.
