2011 Pinot Noir
Coming out of the gate with intense red fruit aromas, mocha and cherry cola, this pinot plays on the palate with youthful tones. Rich mouthful of berries brimming with bright acidity followed by velvety smoothness. Enjoy toasted cedar and black tea flavors in and throughout the finish.
The grapes were optically sorted to the highest degree of quality. The wine saw 35% new French oak for 14 months, which adds structure and weight to the palate, while accentuating the natural red fruit. The barrels add spice, vanilla, mocha, and espresso to the aromatics. This wine is open top fermented punched down 4 times daily.
Our 2011 Pinot Noir was grown in the rolling hills of Carneros. The vineyard yielded equal parts 667, 777, and 115 Dijon Clones. Cool westerly winds move through the canopy conditioning the fruit and extending the hang time to maximize ripeness as well as create intense color and weight.
