The 2019 “Q” Pinot Noir is a “single vineyard/single clone” bottling from a great site on the Iron Horse Estate which was replanted in 2010. The block is called “Q” simply because in mapping out the property, the family originally used the alphabet to name the individual blocks. The “Q” is the most concentrated and tightly structured of the Iron Horse single vineyard Pinots and a favorite of many. Limited production-no discounts.
By nose, classic Pommard clone, black cherry, fig jam and cedar. By mouth, fig jam, intense raspberry and cedar on the finish, Pommard tannins (i.e. firm and dry). Match with rich stews and roasts.
The 2019 “Q” Pinot Noir is a “single vineyard/single clone” bottling from a great site on the Iron Horse Estate.
Hand picked Pommard 4 grapes, are de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks where they are cold-soaked (using dry ice) for 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 ages prior to blending and bottling.
