v. 2014
To place an order e-mail us

Cherry jam, Meyer lemon and earl grey tea: The 2014 Conifer exemplifies summer, with its intense upfront flavor of red fruit and aromas of rosemary, lavender and star anise. Amid vibrant fruit intensity, its plush shape is suggested rather than rigidly defined—a Pinot Noir for a never-ending summer night. The cumulative effect is a balanced wine of juicy fruit, citrus zest, warm spice and forest air.
