Tasting Notes & Food Pairing
Pn is a light styled Pinot Noir blend meant for everyday drinking. Fermented in older oak barrels, allowing the fresh raspberry and Bing cherry overtones to move to the forefront without an oak presence, we added a spice component by blending in Syrah and Lemberger. Perfect for game birds such as grilled quail and roast pheasant, Pn will also marry well with fruit sauces.
Warm weather enthusiastically welcomed the spring of 2013 and brought bud-break slightly ahead of schedule. Warmer than average temperatures throughout the early and middle parts of the growing season showed promise of a great vintage. As the season progressed, the summer brought moderate rainfall, which when coupled with the high temperatures created high disease pressure within our vineyards. Diligent leaf-pulling and fruit-thinning relieved an abundance of stress from our grapes and resulted in beautiful fruit, fully ripened and without disease. The fall ushered in cool weather and generous winds, leading to drier conditions and an ideal harvest. The wines produced from the 2013 vintage are finessed with bright fruity flavors and fine, elegant tannins.
