Winemaker Notes
This 2014 is an elegant, sophisticated wine for the true Pinot Noir connoisseur. Mouthwatering aromatics of chocolate covered cherries, candied raspberries and espresso bean develop in the glass. On the palate flavors of cocoa, coffee bean, blueberry, and cranberry round out this wine. This Pinot Noir finishes with refined acidity, chalky tobacco, and lingering notes of sweet fennel seed.

Production Notes
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, individual lots were racked to 100% new French oak barrels and aged for 18 months.
Vineyard Notes
2014 was the third consecutive abundant vintage in the Sta. Rita Hills. An early bud break and warm growing season led to the earliest harvest to date. Grape clusters had larger than average berry size that achieved optimal ripeness within a shortened time translating into rich flavors. We hand harvested the grapes between August 19th and October 10th, 2014.
