Pinot Noir 100%
A compass and pith helmet for the soul.
A straw hat filled with berries freshly picked down in the holler. ONX’s first foray into the world of Pinot Noir is lush and as berry-filled as grandma’s homemade bramble berry pie. Packed full of cherry, cola, and vanilla notes, the aromas of AVAtrix burst out of the glass. On the palate, more subtle hints of yellow plum, rose petals, green tea, and nori emerge. This Pinot offers up a full, plush body and a finish infused with red fruit and rustic tannin. Enjoy the down home, country side of Pinot refreshment. (Additional details below).
