Winemaker's Notes

Hand harvested at night when temperatures are cool, the grape clusters were quickly brought to the winery where they were de-stemmed and carefully placed in a stainless steel tank for a five-day cold soak, a technique that gently extracts color, flavor and soft tannin from the grape skins. Following a 10-day fermentation in stainless steel the wine was transferred to 100% French oak barrels (40% new) where it aged for 10 months. The wine was bottled without fining.

    This fruit-forward style Pinot Noir displays rose petal, juicy cherry, fleshy plum, and pomegranate. Barrel aging adds hints of vanilla, brown sugar, and spice for a fresh lingering finish.

    Its a light body and color and not too sweet. I don't think it's fruit forward.

    Nice but a little tannic / harsh... maybe better with food

    Strong oak taste made it seem salty.
