2017 Pinot Noir
Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Our California Pinot Noir is a medium bodied wine which displays aromas of strawberry, cherry cola and raspberry fruit. On the palate, the Pinot offers bright and approachable flavors of cherry and strawberry combined with subtle layers of spice. The bright acidity combined with sweet oak results in a lingering finish.
Grapes from sites throughout Central Coast and the North Coast were harvested at optimal maturity, then de-stemmed and gently placed into open-top stainless steel fermenters and cold soaked for 3 days prior to initiating fermentation. During fermentation, each tank is punched down two to three times per day. The fermented wine then was racked to oak for aging. During the aging process the wine lots were tasted throughout and blended back together just before bottling.
