2009 Pinot Noir

2009 Pinot Noir
SOLD OUT

Pinot noir clones: Pommard, Wadenswil and Dijon 115 clones
Yield: The fruit was cropped to 2.7 lbs. per vine, 4.4 tons harvested
Harvest: September 26, 2009
Vinification: Hand-harvested and hand-sorted; de-stemmed and whole berry fermented; 5 day cold soak; 7 day ferment; 4 day post-fermentation maceration; two punch downs per day
Cellaring: Barrel-aged in 40% new French oak for 11 months
Production: 250 cases bottled on October 3, 2010
Released: May 6, 2011
Tasting Notes: The hotter than average 2009 vintage pushed grapes to full maturity and the resulting wine is full-bodied, warm and rich. Dried fruits dominate the nose, with secondary notes of jasmine, truffles and wet stone.
On the palate, cranberry and cherry round out the profile of dusty tannins and bracing acidity, with an intensely long finish. The use of oak is pleasant and unobtrusive, with just hints of baking spice, cedar and pencil shavings.
Over time, the flavors deepen and hints of game, darker berries and earth emerge.
