Joe Wagner is not one to shy away from bold and fruit-forward winemaking, and with his latest release, Boen, he is continuing the traditions of Belle Glos and the other wines in the Copper Cane collection.
Bold vanilla and fresh raspberry and strawberry notes lead the way into a creamy palate, uncharacteristic for pinot (even bold Russian River-style pinot) but at least drinkable and friendly on their own. Notes of tea leaf and cafe au lait add a dessert-like quality to the finish.
