Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A powerful expression of pinot noir, our PNX opens with intense aromas of black cherries and black plum, spreading across the palate into warm black compote, exotic sweet spice, and a touch of savory complexity which extend through the wine’s deliciously rich finish. 100% Pinot Noir
Vineyard Notes
The PNX blends fruit from the Carneros district where cool breezes and fog coming off the San Pablo Bay create an ideal environment for intense Pinot Noir aromatics. We selected vineyard blocks from these vineyards where the Pinot Noir fruit shows its more opulent, voluptuous side.
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 27 days. Several days of cold soak enhanced color extraction and tannin texture. Malolactic fermentation and eight months of aging occurred in 90% new Burgundian oak barrels. The wine was bottled in July 2017.

This 2016 PNX is very reminiscent of the highly coveted (by me anyway) 2009 Pinot Reserve. Not too heavy, but flavorful and fruity. Approaches the classic Oregon Pinot profile better than most CA Pinot's. Not sure where that description of 'pencil lead' came from on the club flyer's tasting notes. Weird.
