2013 Pinot Noir
The grapes for the 2013 Pinot Noir came from some of our best vineyards — 53% from our Lodi/Delta region and 47% from Central Coast.
Harvested during the cool mornings in Sacramento County and the Central Coast, the grapes were brought into the winery at a cool 55 degrees. After a brief cold soak, the grapes were then sent to tank for an eight day fermentation. The wine was aged in American and French oak upright tanks for six months to add complexity and round out the tannins.
Good medium weighted palate with strong varietal berry and cherry fruit, violets and toasty oak flavors.
