Winemaker David Fleming Notes
The 2008 estate Pinot Noir is a fine example of clonal diversity coming together in one wine. It is a blend of four different clones we grow on our estate vineyard. The Martini brings a feminine elegance and delicacy, and 115 and 667 offer masculine structure and intensity, while the 777 adds a soft perfumed, strawberry component.

About 70% of the fruit for this wine was fermented in small five-ton open-top fermenters, with the balance in ten-ton tanks. All received a four-day cold soak, then separate lots were inoculated with three unique yeast strains; RC212, GRE, and BGY. We increased the new barrel contact from 30% to 40% this vintage, adding just enough wood character. This wine is youthful and approachable, with soft acidity ...more... and a juicy mid-palate with seamless transition. The focus is decidedly Burgundian, with flavors of cherry and raspberry.
