The classic Pinot Noir, with aromas of wild raspberries and cherry fruit, is made from grapes grown in a hillside vineyard above Dry Creek Valley. The rich structure and concentrated depth of flavor eloquently express this vineyard's unique combination of vines, soil and climate.
This Dry Creek Valley hillside vineyard creates grapes with concentrated, richly layered, well-structured flavors.
Vintage: Moderate temperatures with no appreciable rainfall throughout the ripening season allowed the grapes to fully develop exceptionally rich flavors.
Fermentation: The grapes were crushed into small fermenters. After “cold-soaking” to extract rich color, the must fermented for two weeks to fully develop the mouthfeel and palate. After fermentation, the wine was gently pressed out, settled, and racked into barrels.
Cooperage / Aging: The wine was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels.
