In a sea of Pinot Noir tasting rooms, check out the classic style juice at Phillips Hill. These Burgundian Pinot Noirs are lighter in alcohol, tannins, and a bit less jammy than most California styles. Still, there is no mistaking the fabulous fruit that comes from this grape. Actually, you can probably get a cleaner sense of its fruit because the other layers are not overwhelming. The natural fruit flavor is more evident in these elegant, crisp, refreshing, and classic wines.
Like most winemakers, Toby Hill is an artist. His art takes reusability up a notch, creating wall hangings out of used wine barrel scraps. Not your standard planting barrel or candle rack. He uses the stave metals.
