2014 La Cantera Vineyard Pinot Noir

2014 La Cantera Vineyard Pinot Noir


Overview / Tasting Note : Depth and intensity defines the nose of the youthful 2014 La Cantera Vineyard Pinot Noir. The classic sweet spicy and dusty floral elements of this 30-year-old hilltop vineyard jump from the glass making a strong show of matching the layers of deep red cherry, pomegranate and bramble. Lovely clarity and elegance seem to balance the wildness and generosity of the fruit. An exciting, age-worthy, single-vineyard edition from our flagship vineyard! 

Production Notes : Some fermenters were completely destemmed and some were 100% whole cluster. 25% wholecluster in the final blend. All of the lots saw a 48 hour cold soak with daily pumpovers. The fermenters were warmed and continued uninoculated with twice daily foot treading on the whole cluster lots and punchdowns on the destemmed lots. Fermentations proceeded swiftly but soundly for 12-15 days and were pressed at dryness. Wines were racked to barrel separately and aged 15 months in 15% new oak before racking and bottling.
