Winemaker Notes
Our 2014 Lindsay's Pinot Noir, named after Proprietor Bill Foley's daughter, is a lighter bodied fruit driven Pinot Noir. With no new oak contact, the fruit and vineyard terroir are the focal points of this wine. Vibrant notes of fresh raspberry jam and hints of perfumed cherry cola fill the nose. Moderately acidic, the palate is filled with mouthwatering flavors of ripe boysenberries and black pepper with delicate nuances of nutmeg and soft tannin on the finish.

Production Notes
This Pinot Noir came from our estate Rancho Santa Rosa vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The fruit was hand-harvested and sorted in the vineyard prior to arrival at the winery. The clusters were then carefully destemmed to keep the berries intact. Additional hand sorting removed any jack stems before the fruit was transferred to stainless steel, open-top fermenters. The juice and skins were cold–soaked for four days prior to fermentation and then gently punched down for several days. After primary fermentation was complete, the new wine was drained and the skins were gently pressed. This Pinot Noir was barrel aged in neutral French oak for 18 months before it was bottled.
Vineyard Notes
Rancho Santa Rosa - Lindsay's. The 2014 vintage was another solid year in the Sta. Rita Hills. It was our third consecutive abundant vintage with high quality fruit and large yields. With the earliest bud break on record and such a warm growing season, this was the earliest harvest to date. Conditions remained ideal from bloom to set only minimally burdened by the typical afternoon winds that sweep through Sta. Rita Hills.
