"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 adn fine chiseled tannis give the wine its super distinctive personality.  There is much to like here."  

Production notes

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Clones 115 & 777
