Tasting notes

"One of the most distinctive wines in the range, the 2014 Pinot Noir Las Hermanas Vineyard is captivating,  Fresh, nuanced and super-expressive, it hits on all the right notes.  Intense, perfumed aromatics, brigth fruit and fine chiseled tannis give the wine its super distinctive personality.  There is much to like here." - 93 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Production notes

Hand-harvested grapes from Las Hermanas Vineyard from the same 12 rows of sandy soil. 50% whole cluster fermentation in small lots (2 tons). Like always, we relied on the native yeast that the grapes carried from the vineyards to complete the fermentation. We hand punched each fermentor twice a day to enhance the extraction of colors, tannins and flavors. After primary fermentation was complete we extended maceration for up to 30-35 days to further extract color, tannins and flavor. We pressed with ultra-gentle stainless steel basket press in an 8-hour cycle. Aged in 25% new French oak for 22 months prior to bottling, no fining or filtering with two rackings before bottling.and then another year in bottle prior to releasing.
