Please join us for a tasting of our current releases of Pinot Noir and a selection of older vintages.
We are so pleased by the quality of the 2008 Pinot Noir, but disappointed that there are fewer than 160 cases to share. The precious fruit reached perfection between September 1 and 6 with deep and rich flavors, excellent sweetness (24.7° Brix)and just the right amount of tartness (0.9 TA and 3.3 pH) to make a delicious wine. The primary fermentation transformed the juice into wine in 11 days and the result rested in a mix of new and near-new French oak barrels (Francois Freres) for 17 months.
This is a wine for special occasions. It is soft and luscious with wonderful complexity for which this noble grape is so rightfully celebrated. It is the winemaker’s personal favorite from over 3 decades of tending our grapes into wine.
