More About Our Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

The Pinot Noir has a brilliant ruby red color and is dominated by fruity notes of red cherries, raspberries, and red plums, combined with added complexity of toee and chocolate with subtle notes of vanilla and baking spice. On the palate this wine is soft, fresh and round with a finish that hints of stone and soil.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes were 100% destemmed into stainless steel fermentation vessels and cold soaked for 3 to 5 days for extraction of color and flavor. The wine was fermented at low temperatures to promote flavor development and increase complexity. The wine saw oak contact following complete malolactic fermentation, developing structure and contributing complexity. This no sulfites added wine was bottled after a brief elevage in order to preserve freshness and ensure stability; no sulfites were added and the Total SO2 Level of the wine is less than 5 parts per million.

Vintage Notes

The 2021 vintage began with a cool but dry spring, with bud break occurring right on schedule in April. After a fairly typical spring, bloom took place during an extended period in mixed weather in early June, leading to mixed fruit set-we observed strong set in our earliest and latest sites. In late June, a record-breaking heat wave struck the West Coast, but the vines came through the heat in great shape and ripened evenly throughout the rest of a warm, dry summer. A cooling trend took place in early September, preserving fresh fruit flavors and natural acidity and allowing the harvest season for our vineyards to take place over a period of nearly two months. The fruit in 2021 was remarkable for its delicate flavors, perfect condition, and balanced acid and tannin profile; the young wines are compelling and easy to love.
