2014 Janus Pinot Noir Magnum 1.5L

2014 Janus Pinot Noir Magnum 1.5L

It has beautiful tart acidity, yet still carries medium weight and a lushness that expands on the palate. Love the freshness and the vibrant acidity that reminds me of a red sancerre. Moderate tannins on the finish, with a long lasting taste of mineral, red fruit, and acidity.

In Roman mythology, Janus is the God for new beginnings, as well as endings, the future, the past and doorways. Janus is the God of balance. The ultimate expression of Pinot Noir! Janus is our flagship… the richest, most vibrant and intense blend that we produce.

Janus is the first label that Jimi produced when he founded Brooks in 1998. Jimi’s passion and interests of mythology and astrology often were shown through the creation of his first wines.
