Winemaker Notes
Sophisticated aromas of star anise, morel mushrooms and toasty oak segue to enticing ripe berry and bittersweet chocolate notes, underscored by hints of black licorice and truffle. A marriage of strength and harmony, this Pinot Noir should age very well.
Production
In 2007, a dry winter led to even growth and manageable canopies. The summer was cool, and lacked any major heat spells until just before Labor Day when we began the first of four “mini-harvests.” These mini-harvests allowed us to pick at ideal ripeness over a seven-week period. Although the crop was lighter than expected, the quality was excellent. While each mini-harvest offered fruit with its own personality, there is a lovely consistency to the dark, well-extracted and structured nature of the wines.
