Dark in color, this wine packs deep blackberry and boysenberry aromas together with violet, allspice and sandalwood. The palate is redolent of licorice and nutmeg, wrapped in an unrelenting texture that lets the black plum and lilac flavors just to peek out. Time will allow this to blossom. Drink 2019 - 2034.

Wine Profile

Winemaker Notes
A bouquet of candied cherries, sage and flint waft from this brooding, intensely wrapped 2014 Ryan vineyard Pinot Noir. Flavors of red currant, star fruit, blackberry and red plum with low notes of brown Asian spice balance out thick tannins and an intriguing muscular structure. This wine has a very long life ahead.
Production
Little rainfall in 2014 led us into our third year of a drought. Warm spring temperatures and brilliant sunshine through the summer made for a fantastic growing season, but yields were severely affected by the lack of rainwater. This made for a fast, furious and early harvest. We picked the Ryan vineyard in three passes from September 4th to September 10th. Each lot was pressed 14 days after harvest, racked by gravity to French oak barrels, then aged without racking in those barrels, 30% new, for twenty months. The lots were then combined and the resultant wine was bottled without filtration, as always.
