Tasting Notes: Balanced and smooth from start to finish, this Pinot Noir leads with a silky entry. Jammy-strawberry, cherry and boysenberry fruit flavors are enriched by integrated oak and blended with Petit Verdot to achieve a substantial body. Our Pinot Noir is rich with jammy berry notes, silky tannins and a long layered finish. Petit Verdot contributes to the beautiful color and substantial body of the wine.
Vinification: Canopy Management is very important for the finicky Pinot Noir grape. Providing a great deal of shade for the ripening clusters helps keep the varietal on the cooler side and ensures more continuity of grape size within the cluster. In the cellar, we take care to press Pinot Noir gently and have a delicate oak treatment, about 4 months with 20% new French oak.
