Winemaker Notes
The prized 1975 plantings of Jensen Vineyard have yielded a gorgeous Pinot Noir that strikes a seamless balance between lushness and finesse. On the nose, aromas of ripe red cherry, cedar and black raspberry rise from the glass, followed by hints clove and spice. The palate is silky and generous, with abundant layers of ripe fruit gliding to a vibrant and lingering finish.
Production
After several years of drought, 2016 brought a return to normal winter rainfall levels, which replenished the Mt. Harlan vineyards and set the pace for a slightly early, but near-ideal, growing season. A warm spring led to a relatively early budbreak, followed by warm, sunny summer. While summer provided abundant sunshine for ripening the grapes, mild nights ensured that they ripened perfectly, with excellent acid and sugar levels. As a result, our 2016 Pinot Noirs are lush and balanced, with beautifully articulated flavors.
