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.

2015 Tasting Notes

A radiant ruby/garnet color introduces fresh aromas of cranberry, hibiscus, cedar, black tea, and cherry cola that evolve quickly in the glass. The palate exhibits outstanding balance, featuring sensible amounts of delicate French oak, well-integrated with bright fruit, soft tannins, and desired acids.
