Winemaker’s Tasting Notes

Wild strawberry, honeysuckle, iris, cantaloupe and vanilla spice aromatics fill the glass. A light bodied clean entry introduces flavors of Bing cherry, rhubarb, raspberry and red licorice. The wine is balanced with light mid palate tannins and a long fresh acidity.

Winemaking

The fruit was handpicked and transported to the winery where it was fermented separately by clone and vineyard location in small open top bins. The must was punched down by hand 3 to 4 times per day until dryness then lightly pressed to French Burgundy barrels (20% new). Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrels and the wine was racked clean and blended at this time. The wine is unfined and unfiltered.

Vintage Notes

The 2017 growing season started out with ideal weather conditions. After a very wet winter, there was plenty of moisture available to the vines which made for vigorous canopy growth and a healthy crop load. Summer temperatures were well above average and then a series of heat spikes at the end of the growing season quickly pushed the Pinot Noir to perfect ripeness.
