Balanced and smooth, this Pinot Noir has layered notes of jammystrawberry, cherry and boysenberry. The fruit flavors are enriched by well integrated oak and blended with 5% Petit Verdot to achieve a substantial body. Our Pinot Noir is rich and complex with soft tannins and a long layered finish. Petit Verdot contributes to the beautiful color and substantial body of the wine. VINIFICATION Canopy Management is very important for the finicky Pinot Noir grape. Providing a great deal of shade for the ripening clusters helps keep the varietal on the cooler side and ensures more continuity of grape size within the cluster. In the cellar, we take care to press Pinot Noir gently and have a delicate oak treatment, about 4 months with 20% new French oak. VINTAGE 2019 was a year of perseverance and ultimately triumph over adversity. A cold winter caused bud break to occur several days later than expected. Those cool temperatures permeated spring and summer, which affected the output of the vines in the form of a lighter fruit set. Unpredictable weather later in the season forced us to be diligent in the vineyard, and that attentiveness paid off. Weather conditions were ideal in mid-August, which led to longer hang times and excellent fruit expression. The harvest that came from 2019 resulted in wines rich in acidity, flavor, and balance that translated into an excellent vintage overall.
