Tasting Notes

Fruit aromatics dominate this wine, specifically dark Bing Cherry. An undertone of cola spice and leather linger. This wine has pronounced, supple tannin that will only round out more with age.

Winemaking

The fruit was gently destemmed into small open-top fermentors, using state-of-the-art equipment and procedures to avoid any pumping of must. Inoculation with select yeast strains followed a three-day cold soak, and the caps were managed with a combination of pump overs and punch downs. After 12 months of aging in exclusively French oak barrels, 25% of which were new, we bottled in October of 2014.

Vintage

This small parcel of land is planted to three Dijon clones of PinotNoir, 667, 777, and 115. This offers a field blend of clones to bring complexity to the wine.2013 had ideal temperatures and growing conditions. The fruit came in the door healthy, ripe, and luscious. The fruit was hand harvested in the cool evening hours on September 10th,2013.
