This Pinot Noir is made by using the new world technique with the old world traditional winemaking approach. Bright aromas of dark cherry, strawberry, and raspberry as well as hint of spice notes such as caramel, cinnamon, and of clove. A layer of lively red berry flavors and supple acidity balanced well on the palate. Matured tannins and attractive oak notes add complexity.
The grapes were hand-picked at the peak of ripeness. The clusters were destemmed and whole berries went through cold soaked for 5 days before the inoculation. Gentle extraction of grape flavors, tannins, and color were attained by spraying the cap twice daily during fermentation. The wine was aged in French oak for 10 months.
