  • Pure Pleasure and explosive fruit! Our Pinot Noir’s aromatics and taste are dominated by ripe berry and black cherries. The flavors follow with raspberry and hints of strawberry. The texture is rich and elegant finishing long on the palate.

    Wine Profile
    Production Notes
    Although in some vintages we have harvested and fermented our different blocks and clonal selections separately, in 2010, I chose to harvest and ferment the different sections together. This was largely based on the very even ripening throughout the blocks and across the clones. In the vintages that we have separately fermented the selections, we have observed differences in the aromas, texture and flavor components of the individual selections. In general, however, we have usually gravitated towards a composite blend of the selections that brings together all of the great elements of each. Basically what we are doing by co-harvesting and co-fermenting is making a blend, it’s just that we are blending grapes on the crush pad, as opposed to blending wines later in the cellar. When you’ve been working with the same blocks of fruit for over 30 years, you can do things like make field blends with confidence!
    Winemaker Notes
    I find the aromas in this wine very intriguing, with notes of strawberry, red cherry, dried flowers, cinnamon and cola. On the palate this wine has a nice vibrancy, balancing a full ripe texture with a gentle acidity. The flavors are consistent with the aromas, as I find nice tones of strawberry, red cherry and spice on the palate. In its youth the fruit comes across as fresh. As this wine ages, the fruit will mature gracefully as the already soft tannins melt further. Drink Now through 2020.
