Winery Block Pinot Noir 2018

2018 Winery Block Pinot Noir
The Winery Block is four acres at the crest of the knoll below the winery, right there at the tasting room, spilling out at your feet. 2018 is a great vintage. It captures a sense of our cool fog and firm tannins from our Gold Ridge soil.

TASTING NOTES

Very complex with a deep ruby red color. By nose, toasted oak, plum compote and cardamom. By mouth, black berry, plum with soft, but supportive tannins.


VINEYARD NOTES

This four-acre vineyard block is at the crest of the knoll that rises to the winery, planted to single clone, Pommard 5. It lies right in the middle of your view, spilling out at your feet, when you are standing at the Tasting Room, looking east.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Hand picked and of a single clone, (Pommard 5) the grapes are de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks where they are cold-soaked (using dry ice) for four to seven days. Before fermentation is complete, the new wine is gently pressed from the skins and transferred to French oak barrels. Fermentation then goes to completion in the barrels, allowing us to stir the lees as the wine goes through malolactic fermentation.
