Food Pairings for Buena Vista Carneros Winery Ramal Vineyard Pinot Noir Clone Pommard
The grapes were hand harvested at night off of our Ramal Vineyard Estate on September 10 and September 30, 2005, hand sorted and de-stemmed. Each lot was cold soaked for eight days to maximize color and flavor extraction. Fermentation took place in five ton open-top fermentors and tanks were punched down three times a day to broaden the texture and complexity of the wine. After an average of 14 days on skins, the wine was aged in French oak barrels (40% new, balance of one-four year old) for 8 months. The coopers were Remond, Demptos, Francois Frères.
Our EVS clonal wines give us the opportunity to showcase individual clones or blocks that perform exceptionally well in any given vintage. In 2005 the “Pommard clone” of Pinot stood out for its depth of color and fruit intensity. The wine is ripe and explosive with red cherry, black plum, clove and jasmine. The palate is soft and generous with opulent red and black fruit with forest floor nuance. Try this silky Pinot Noir with oven roasted pork tenderloin with cherry reduction.
