EARN REWARD POINTS WITH EVERY PURCHASE

Blueberry and ripe strawberry with a dash of baker’s spice, bramble, and herbs. Intrigue and complexity abound.

Three otters have rested prominently on the Fullerton family crest since the 13th century. Today, we craft these wines to honor our Northern European heritage. Featuring a Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir Rosé, the Three Otters wines are energetic, playful, and make friends easily at gatherings. You will have as much fun drinking them as we did making them—they are otterly delicious!

Description

This wine is handled very gently in the cellar allowing the nuances of the delicate fruit to be preserved and the wine to be very approachable in its youth. We have a preference for pump-overs versus punch-downs for its smoother extraction and softening effect on the tannin. To soften and mature the wine we age it primarily in neutral oak. The result is a fresh, fruit forward Pinot Noir with hints of earth and spice.

Ratings

89 points - Vinous
Light vivid red. Spice-accented red berry aromas and flavors are complemented by a subtle floral nuance that builds as the wine opens up. Juicy, seamless and light on its feet; a peppery note adds back-end cut. Finishes clean and brisk, with soft tannins adding gentle grip and shape.
