*A note on unfined wines:  Fining, though giving you a crystal clear, visually perfect product, strips flavor and longevity from your wine.  We would much rather produce a rich and flavorful wine that might appear a little "dusty" in your glass, than one that looks crystal clear, but tastes a bit thin.

 

Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

This completely unfiltered and unfined Pinot Noir is a savory selection in an austere French style, exuding deep earth and beefy bouillon on the nose.  Leather, tobacco, cranberry and pomegranates hit the palate with firm wood tannins, finishing with notes of buttered raw mushrooms, herbs, pink peppercorns and a hint of cola. Pair with Coq au vin, Beef Wellington, game birds like duck or goose, or mushroom casseroles.   Decanting recommended.

Vineyard Site

Structured and harmonious, yet strong and elegant, our Davis Vineyard is a spectacular representation of quality grape-growing in the Finger Lakes.  Hand-planted in 1998 about a quarter-mile off of the eastern shore of Seneca Lake on Howard Gravelly Loam, this 5 ½ acre site is perfectly suited to produce lively, old-world style wines.

Vintage Notes

Ever so gently the spring of 2014 tip-toed in, to receive a very enthusiastic welcome, from both grape-growers and from the vines themselves. The long and harsh winter - both in terms of temperatures and snowfall - reduced the potential crop yields early in the season. With fewer initial clusters, vines were able to deliver a more focused flow of energy and nutrients to the remaining ripening fruit. The Finger Lakes saw spring and summer days with temperatures regularly vacillating from cool to hot with intermittent showers, creating constant shifts and activity in the vineyards as our grapes inched towards maturity. Each hand-harvested vineyard brought fruit to our winemakers that demonstrated playful acidity, promising flavors, and tremendous quality.
