2016 Boundless Optimism Pinot Noir

Dark cherry in hue, this wine has aromas of cherries, plums, nutmeg and the smell of cherry pie baking in the oven.  A delightfully smooth entry with an intense core of fruit and spice and a long, pleasing finish.

Why Boundless Optimism?

Boundless Optimism wines are the descendants of the 2011 Optimism Rosé, our first foray into positive thinking in wine labeling.  Since optimism is so antithetical to winemaker Edwin Richards’ disposition, we doubled down and called this wine “Boundless Optimism.”  Optimism wines are crafted by Adastra, and all the grapes in this wine came from Adastra’s certified organic vineyard.  Here’s to Optimism, Boundless Optimism!
