Tasting Notes & Food Pairing
This lively Pinot Noir has the true vibrant color of Burgundy with aromas of red fruit mixed with cedar, herbs, and a hint of eucalyptus. On the palate it exudes earthy cranberries with a long finish of Bing cherries and a hint of mint. Pair this wine with roast duckling with red currant glaze, kale salad garnished with dried fruits and walnuts, or cherry cheesecake.
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.
