Aromas and flavors of deep blackberry, black cherry, wild violets and pungent and sweet spices (white pepper, cinnamon, dark chocolate) that seamlessly weave together.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Sunbathed vineyard sites are chosen to express this richer, bolder side of Pinot Noir, with evocative aromas and flavors of deep blackberry, black cherry, wild violets and pungent and sweet spices (white pepper, cinnamon, dark chocolate) that seamlessly weave into this artistically complex style of pinot noir.

100% Pinot Noir
Vineyard Notes
2014 started with worrisome, drought-like conditions, and many feared a parched, dry spring as in 2013. Refreshingly, spring rains came in February and into March providing water for the soils and filling reservoirs. The wine growing season will most be remembered for the August 24th earthquake that occurred just as harvest was commencing in the Napa Valley. The vines were not affected and harvest finished early, bringing in beautiful, healthy fruit.
Winemaker Notes
The clusters were harvested in the cool of the morning to retain fruity, delicate flavors. A portion of the grapes were destemmed before being transferred to fermenters as whole berries to heighten fruitiness. The remaining portion was fermented as whole clusters (with stems) to add a bit of spice, structure and subtle flesh to the texture. During that time the cap of skins was pumped over gently ensuring a soft, silky mouthfeel. The Pinot Noir grapes were macerated in oak tanks for a total of 20 days. Several days of cold soak enhanced color extraction and tannin texture. Malolactic fermentation and nine months of aging occurred in 69% new Burgundian oak barrels. The wine was bottled in August, 2015.
