Wine Profile

Production Notes
Varietal Content 100% Pinot Noir Cooperage 78% New, 22% Second Vintage French oak Medium toast: Allier, Vosges and Tronçais Forests
Winemaker Notes
It begins with a highly aromatic nose featuring an array of spice elements alongside plum, raspberry, vanilla, oak and a hint of mint. The red fruit continues on the palate with beautifully extracted cranberry compote, red loganberry and raspberry flavors supported by broad, refined tannins that conclude in a long, sumptuous finish.
Production
In 2006 the weather cooperated—in fact, it was ideal. Temperatures remained mild, allowing us to handpick each block based on ripeness and flavors, and extending the harvest over seven weeks, commencing at Confluence Vineyard on September 7 and culminating with The Narrows Vineyard on October 28. Winemaker Zach Rasmuson describes the fruit quality from the 2006 vintage as impressive: “the wines are full, well-extracted, and tasty.”
