2014 Monterey County Pinot Noir

Vineyard

Planted on benchlands near the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, our Monterey County Pinot Noir vineyards dip in and out of the fog line during the ripening season. Because we farm our own vineyards, we control the winemaking process from vineyard block to bottle.
 

Vintage

2014 was a banner year for Pinot Noir.  The growing season was warm and measured, with no rain events to hamper perfect ripening.  Winemaker Alison Crowe starts off with a cold soak to fix color, ferments warm to extract the rich tannins and presses gently to minimize seed extraction. Lees stirring, 100% French oak aging and careful final blending finish off the minimalist process.
 

Tasting Notes

"The aroma of this wine shows amazing depth as it opens up with blackberry and macerated cherry notes followed up by layers of clove, vanilla and perhaps a little duck fat.  An earthy smokiness is offset nicely by the richness of fruit on the palate."  -Alison Crowe, Winemaker
 
Alcohol, 13.80%; pH, 3.63; total acidity, 6.80g/L; 16,000 cases produced.
