This chimeric mutation of pinot noir is simply about pink florals in spring. There are elements of freshly baked vosges mountain cherry cake with an estery core dotted with fennel seed, almond meal, rhubarb and frijola.

The palate drive is from crunchy whole bunch natural acidity. The ochota trademark of tightly wound fine tannins wrapped in a core of pulsing bright red berries.

Succulent with the mid palate holding length and energy.
