Cherry Pie is another innovative offering from visionary winemaker Jayson Woodbridge, creator of Hundred Acre and Layer Cake Wines. One would think with the myriad winemaking projects that literally take him and his winemaking team around the globe several times each year, that Jayson would be content with his current stable of wines?but he has yearned to make Pinot Noir for years and circumstances finally aligned for him to do just that.
In the 2014 Rodgers Creek Pinot Noir, pretty floral aromas first appear, with ripe cherry, apple blossom and delicate oak spice notes. Baking spice and dark chocolate flavors appear on the palate, but they do so in harmony with raspberry bramble, creating a sensation of both decadence and freshness. Red fruits carry the finish with tart cranberry, Bing cherry and licorice flavors lingering long after each sip.
