Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Our Pinot Noir continues the Firesteed tradition of a consistent fruit driven style, achieved with gentle techniques in the cellar and imagination in the vineyard. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts propagated from cellars in Burgundy, pressed during the last days of fermentation, and racked as soon as the wine finished malo-lactic fermentation. A touch of barrel-aged wine was included in the blend to round out the flavors and enhance complexity. Lively and expressive, this wine's aromas of raspberry, cinnamon, blueberry and flavors of cocoa powder and Rainier cherry, encourage second sip before flowing into the soft, lingering finish.
