Winemaker Tasting Notes
Made with partial whole-cluster Pinot Noir, the 2016 TightRope has fruit-driven aromas of black cherry, red plum, cassis with secondary aromas of dried figs and baked fruits. Prominent silky tannins pave the way for a long, pronounced finish with notes of cherry and currant. Luscious mouthfeel that craves pairing with rich proteins.

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 TightRope. Serve at 58-62F.
