Winemaking Gently hand harvested, the grapes were destemmed without crushing. Our massive must chiller guarantees that our Pinot gets a slow cool start to its fermentation. Most lots were inoculated with one of several yeast strains; some lots went through uninoculated fermentations. A mixture of thorough punchdowns and gentle pumpovers gives color with texture. Pressed off shortly after dryness and aged in French oak barrels. Tasting Notes An exuberant expression of great Carneros Pinot Noir. Refined and elegant aromas of raspberry, cherry and red currant. This wine is beautifully subtle. Harmoniously multi-layered with oak spices of clove, all spice and smoke. Perfectly balanced with the gentle tingle of acid which keeps the berry fruit lively yet still preserving a silky texture and finish. This wine will age well.
