Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

The 4 acres of Pinot Noir share the North valley with the Sauvignon Blanc.  Pinot Noir is a delicate grape and wine and although it can fair well in the cold we are likely to experience some early budbreak.  As a result, we installed a micro-emitter frost protection system in this entire area to decrease the risk of freezing and loss of some or all of a vintage.

2014 Tasting Notes

With lovely ruby/violet hues, this enchanting wine shows incredible potential to develop gracefully in the bottle for years.  Initially, bright aromas of red plum, cherry, cinnamon, clove, and allspice dominate, becoming much darker and more complex over time. Delicate acid and tannin, fused with sweet French oak and fruit, yield an elegant finish.
