Winemaker Jason De Loach Notes
Despite going into the 5th year of drought, 2016 was another fantastic growing year in the Russian River Valley. Yields were larger than that of 2015 while a slightly cooler August allowed the clusters to mature more slowly and evenly than that vintage, providing great flavor and color development. We use old world techniques, whole berries, and whole clusters to make our Pinot Noir in small batches that we "punch-down" up to three times a day. After native yeast fermentation the wine is aged in French oak barrels for up to 8 months to achieve optimum balance and complexity. Our Pinot Noir displays a medium magenta red hue, followed by aromas of vanilla bean and bright blueberry -cherry with slight notes of powdered cinnamon. Ful ...more... l ripe flavors of stone fruit, vanilla and dark chocolate pomegranate, finish this multi-layered Pinot. Lovely and rich, it can be enjoyed with a meal or on its own.
