Winemaker Ray Coursen Notes
Our 2007 Pinot Noir is from the meticulously farmed Lyons vineyard located near the ridge of the Vaca Mountain range on the southeastern edge of the Napa. After a five day cold-soak, the native fermentation was punched down three times a day by hand for 15 days. The wine then matured sur lie for 16 months in 30% new French oak.

This Pinot Noir is medium ruby in color and is richly textured. It displays a perfumed bouquet of fresh berries, black tea, and tobacco leaf along with underlying hints of white pepper and dusty earth. Bright red berries and earthiness lead to a generous mouth feel with plush tannins and great balance. The wine has an alluring and seamless palate and is more Burgundian-like in its seductive finish.
