Tilth Pinot Noir 2018 (92 WE)
“The majority of the grapes in this wine are whole-cluster fermented and then aged 10 months in French oak, a minority of it new. This is a fresh, soft and supple red, with robust earthiness. Forest, black tea and tar ride along a wavelength of tangy strawberry and rhubarb, finishing focused and peppery.”

Jason and Hilary Driscoll met in Washington State and discovered their love of wine through Jason’s work as a chef and their determination to find the perfect wine pairings. What was supposed to be a brief once-in-a-lifetime harvest opportunity in between kitchens, turned into a passion and full-time job as Jason worked his way up through the cellars at Hunnicut Wines before becoming the Assistant Winemaker for David and Katharine DeSante of DeSante Wines. “DeSante University” immersed him both in the vineyards and the cellar. He learned everything from pruning to pump-building. Jason was exposed to lesser known vineyards, both old and new, that produced spectacular fruit. Inspired by the quality wines these vineyards produced, Hilary and Jason conceived Tilth Wines.
