Production Notes
Hand harvested in the chill of early morning our Pinot Noir grapes are de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks where they are cold-soaked (using dry ice) for seven days. We blend in steely Chardonnay to add a firm acid backbone. After pressing the juice slowly ferments in stainless steel tanks at 62° to 65° f retaining the bright fresh Pinot Noir fruit tones.
Winemaker Notes
By nose, ripe red fruit, raspberry and dark cherry. In the mouth, full and soft, a touch of strawberry, raspberry, dark cherry and lime.
Food Pairing Notes
Excellent as an aperitif, though still the perfect wine with steak, grilled lobster, pan fried rainbow trout, Easter Ham and Thanksgiving turkey.
