Born for everyday enjoyment, our Tobiano Pinot Noir is less serious than its big brother Alazan. Tobiano is a blend of different parcels within the greater Kingston vineyard. The Kingston fruit always has two faces—a fruity side and an earthy side, which are on full display here. Maybe a touch lighter in color and body than recent vintages, the aromatics have a nice “lift,” with a dose of freshness that makes the wine even more quaffable than previous Tobianos.
