Vineyard Notes
Vineyard Notes
Sourced exclusively from our Walter’s Vineyard high on the bluff of our Estate. We grow both clone 4 (Pommard) and clone 777 (Dijon). The soil itself is a sandy loam that is extremely well drained. The combination of constant wind and fog lends this little plot of land to exceptional conditions for premium quality pinot noir.
Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes
Deep ruby with hues of violet in the glass, the nose is rich with ripe, black fruit, baking spices and a touch of graphite. The palate is mouth filling and silky with layers of black cherry reduction, ripe fig and notes of hibiscus and cinnamon.
Winemaker Notes
Winemaker Notes
Gentle is the way to go with our Pinot Noir from hand harvesting during the coolest hour of the daybreak, to the de-stemming process where capturing as many whole berries is our goal. Fermentation in small specially designed open tops with a small cap capability allows us to fully extract all the flavor within the berries without having to utilize the harsher punch down techniques. 
Production Notes
Production Notes
-Fermented in a 1.5-ton fermenter with 30% of the fruit left whole cluster and added to the bottom of the tank first. The rest was de-stemmed then tipped on top. The fruit was left to cold soak until the onset of indigenous, primary fermentation. Punchdowns ensued up to three times daily during peak fermentation then slowed to once a day below 10 Brix. The wine went dry a few days later and was then left to go through Malolactic fermentation indigenously as well. The wine was aged in barrel with no racking until 2 months before bottling. Sixty days before bottling the wine was racked off of its fermentation lees to help it settle.
