2012 Reserve Pinot Noir

Our grapes for our 2012 Reserve Pinot Noir were selected from "Wildchild", our smallest block in our vineyard. Hanging one cluster per shoot for potential reserve quality, then fermented using 30% whole cluster micro batch fermentation. Following a slow and cool fermentation regime, the Reserve Pinot Noir was pressed off and transferred to new, or second use, French oak barrels for 22 month maturation. Seductively rich, dark ruby-violet color, cherry and plum, a well-rounded tannin and cinnamon spice finish. With careful cellaring, this wine should cellar well for at least 5 to 8 years
