An expressive and feminine Pinot Noir with bright red fruit notes and a hint of rose petal. 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.
Limpid ruby-red. Vibrant and finely detailed on the perfumed nose, displaying intense red berry, cherry and floral character and building floral and mineral notes. Lithe, focused and appealingly sweet, offering juicy raspberry, cherry, spicecake and candied rose flavors and subtle mocha and cola flourishes. Blends depth and energy with a sure hand and closes with strong, floral-driven persistence and smooth, well-knit tannins that sneak in late.
