Tasting Notes

Medium ruby with garnet highlights. The nose exudes strawberries, cherries and light oak spice. This Pinot is medium bodied with fresh acidity and an initial sweet core well supported by balanced tannins. Cherries and light oak flavors follow to the finish. A wine that is a bit tightly wound and just starting to open up with additional bottle age.

Winemaker Notes

14 tons of Pinot Noir was harvested on Sept 29 & Oct 1, 2009 from PN2 (1997, 22.2 Brix, 3.45 pH, 7.8 g/L Ta) & PN1 (2001, 22.4 Brix, 3.42 pH, 7.2 g/L Ta), crushed and destemmed. All lots were racked to older neutral oak, with 7% new French oak and 7% 3rd use French oak. Malolactic fermentation finished by mid November. The Reserve wine is composed of a selection of 6.5 barrels – 46% PN2, 46% PN1 and 8% combined press fraction. The newest oak includes 31% 3rd use barrels.

Food Pairing

Pinot Noir pairs with leaner meats such as veal, chicken, turkey, rabbit, game birds, and filets of beef and pork. These can be smoked or roasted. Also pair with earthy dishes such as mushrooms.
