The vineyard was harvested over a period of 11 days in mid to late September. Only short cold soaks were required to achieve full color and flavor, with many fermentations starting naturally. Fermentations occurred in 1 to 1.5 ton lot sizes over a period of 7-10 days. The wine was barrel aged for a period of 14 months in French Oak, 50% of it new. This wine is sourced solely from a block of self rooted, dry farmed Pommard 39 years in age.
Tasting Notes:
Our 2015 Old Vine Pinot Noir has a light bright color ruby that is pretty typical for our wines from Laurelwood soils. It exhibits light grained tannins and ripe strawberries, with hints of pomegranate, dried herb, and finishes with a nice tart structure. The acids are bright, emphasizes red fruit flavors of tart cherries, cloves, graham crackers and cinnamon and finishes cleanly.
