“An aroma of violets leads to very fruity and floral flavors in this medium-bodied wine from relatively new vintner Samantha Sheehan. Light tannins add a bit of grip to the texture, while good, tart cherry and cranberry flavors open up on the palate. No rush to drink it. Best through 2024.”
Wow! Free shipping on 4! Rare enough to see this at retail, but at this price? Back up the truck!
We love POE’s new releases (usually highly allocated to restaurants), but especially the Manchester Ridge, up in Anderson Valley, aka pinot paradise!! If you love perfumey, floral and beautifully detailed pinot noir, you’ll want to get more than you think!
Samantha Sheehan founded POE in 2009 after being inspired by the wines she tasted in Burgundy and Champagne. Her goal isn't to copy Burgundy, but rather to create vineyard specific, alluring and ageworthy wines. There is minimal intervention and never any additives. Each wine produced is made in very limited quantities and sold directly to high-end restaurants. They produce champagne method sparkling wines, rose, chardonnay, pinot noir from three different vineyards: Ferrington Vineyards, Van der Kamp Vineyards, and Manchester Ridge.
We wish we had more...while it lasts!
