Brigette Catherine Pinot noir Wine Information

Our Reserve wine and flagship Pinot noir, Brigette Catherine reflects the bold and dynamic personality of the woman for whom it is named.  In honor of the special aunt Phil so fondly remembers from his childhood, Aaron has carefully crafted this wine to showcase its complexity and age-worthiness.  Aaron has only produced this Reserve wine three times (2002, 2005, and 2012).  Brigette Catherine... not your average auntie, and not your average Pinot!
