As the first vineyard picked in 08, this fruit christened our new facility with it's inaugural crush! As with all of our Pinot Noirs the fruit was destemmed into open-topped fermenters, treated to twice daily manual punch-downs (the most gentle means of flavor and tannin extraction) and aging in all French oak barrels, one-third new. True to form, this wine explodes out of the glass with aromas of caramelized fruit, candied citrus rind and baking spice. Sleek, yet structured, tannins partner with defining acidity for an elegant mouthfeel. Despite its current accessibility, we believe this vintage will cellar well for 7-10 years.
