Winemaker David Coventry Notes
Our Pinot Noir grapes were destemmed into open top fermenters; we induced primary fermentation with two specialized yeast strains known for their ability to maintain color and produce intense flavors. After fermentation, the wine was pressed into a combination of new and one year old French oak barrels where it matured for 10 months. Only 590 cases were produced. The 2011 Manzoni Pinot Noir has cherry and red berry fruit characters that dominate the nose, backed by Burgundian nuances of vanilla and hard spices . On the palate, the ripe and lush berry and spicy flavors are backed by moderate acidity and medium-weight tannins. This classic Pinot Noir will hold its own with rich stews, tomato-sauced pastas, strong cheeses, and just about anyth ...more... ing off the grill! While delicious now, it will certainly reward a few years of careful cellaring.
