Delicate aromatic notes of dried rose petals, pepper, and nutmeg. Its flavors of scrumptious red and dark fruit notes of red plum and blackberry are framed by prevalent French oak notes with a savory richness.

The 2013 is a truly refined Pinot Noir with delicate aromatic notes of dried rose petals, pepper, and nutmeg. Its flavors of scrumptious red and dark fruit notes of red plum and blackberry are framed by prevalent French oak notes which create a savory richness. The end result is a wine with great tannin length and lingering notes of soft black pepper and blackened sage.
Ratings
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast. Clove-spiced pomegranate juice hits the nose first on this top-end bottling from the Foley family. It also offers some soy and sesame scents. A minerally line of pencil lead and black rocks coalesce the palate around savory, tangy flavors of tart cherry, incense, Earl Grey tea and orange rind. -MK

Production Notes
2013 was an abundant vintage in the Sta. Rita Hills. Mild rain and few Frost incidents in early spring led to a long and early growing season, with dry and consistently warm temperatures throughout spring and summer. Yields were both high in quality and quantity. We hand harvested the grapes between September 5th and November 5th, 2013. Our Pinot Noir was hand-harvested from Lindsay’s Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills. The clusters were then de-stemmed with no crushing and the must was cold-soaked in open-top fermenters for four days prior to inoculation. Each tank was manually punched down daily for more extraction. The wine was then transferred to tank for settling after primary fermentation and maceration. Finally, indicidual lots were racked to 100% new French oak barrels and aged for 18 months.
