Tasting Notes

Ruby red in color, this Pinot Noir displays aromas of black cherry with hints of dried violets and sage. In the mouth, rich flavors of black cherry and cranberry are balanced with a light toasty oak.

Vineyard Notes

The 2016 growing season was off to a great start with winter and spring rains, no frost events, and an earlier-than-normal bud break. Warm, sunny days followed during fruit set, resulting in even cluster development. A classic ripening season consisting of cool night and morning temperatures with moderate daytime temperatures that heated up in August allowed for mature flavor and tannin development and brought the fruit to optimum Brix levels.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes were destemmed but not crushed to stainless steel fermenters. The must was chilled to 50°F for a three-day cold soak, then yeast was added for alcoholic fermentation. The juice was pumped over the skins two to three times per day for about eight days. Then, the lots were pressed off onto oak to undergo malolactic fermentation. After six months of aging in oak, lots were racked and blended in preparation for bottling.

Food Pairing

This silky Pinot Noir pairs well with slow-roasted pork shoulder, ribs, or any dish made with bacon
