Each vintage, Ken meticulously tastes every barrel in the cellar before creating the final bottlings. There are a few barrels that he feels are stunningly beautiful. These barrels are reserved for Auric Pinot Noir.
The meaning of the word Auric, is "containing gold" or "the aura surrounding a living thing." Wine is indeed a living thing. With the purchase of a magnum or six pack, the wine will be delivered in a beautiful wooden box.
This bottling is extremely limited and may not be made every vintage.
