The grapes for the 2014 Pinot Noir came from some of the best vineyards in California, 52% from Lodi/Delta and 48% from Central Coast. By focusing on these Mediterranean and coastal climates, we are able to obtain grapes that have proven to produce full-flavored wines with a refreshing natural acidity.
Harvested during the cool mornings in Sacramento County and the Central Coast, the grapes were brought into the winery at a cool 55 degrees. After a brief cold soak, the grapes were then sent to tank for an eight day fermentation. The wine was aged in American and French oak upright tanks for six months to add complexity and round out the tannins.
Good medium weighted palate with strong varietal berry and cherry fruit, violets and toasty oak flavors.
