Pierre Léon

$60.00

Named after our founder’s father, Pierre Léon was one of the first vineyard designate Pinot Noirs produced at WillaKenzie Estate. This wine offers concentrated dark fruit and nuanced savory notes—the more masculine side of our winery.  

Descriptors 
Fruit 

Blue and dark fruit characteristics.

Spice, Vegetable, Mineral 

Hints of cedar, forest floor and a dash of minerality. 

Texture/Structure 

A palate that offers power, tension, balanced acidity and great length.

At The Table 

This distinguished Pinot will pair well with a variety of dishes whatever the season: grilled ribeye steak, roasted duck, and venison.

Glassware 

A traditional Pinot Noir/Burgundy glass with a round bowl will convey this varietal’s profound aromatics and structural characteristics.

Serving and Cellar 

Serve at cellar temperature 55 – 60 ̊F. We suggest opening and decanting before drinking.
