2014 Reserve Pinot Noir

2014 Reserve Pinot Noir


An expressive nose of dried rose petal, tart cherry, wild strawberry and raspberry bramble stands prominently and in balance with a palate that is graciously ripe and balanced with bright acidity and a modest alcohol level. The weight and mouth feel are lifted and sleek with a generous, sweet mid-palate and very fine, evolved tannins on the finish. The Reserve is vibrant and energetic in its youth and will be eager to evolve in bottle over the next 8-10 years.

Hand harvested grapes are destemmed and cold soaked for 3-5 days. A combination of native and inoculat- ed yeasts slowly initiated fermentation allowing a gentle extraction aided by punchdowns occurring 3 times daily. The lots are pressed at dryness, and sent to barrel. Aged for 12 months with light lees contact, then racked clean to barrels for another 5 months before bottling.

2014 was marked by dry, warm weather. An effortless and early path through ripening resulted in abundant and remarkably balanced fruit. In the months that followed, it was clear that an exceptional Reserve Pinot Noir was taking shape.
