Chateau St Jean Pinot Noir la Petite Etoile Vineyard 2008
The 2008 vintage had low yields but produced superior quality grapes. The vines were harvested in September and early October with ten percent of the harvest undergoing whole-berry fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fruity flavors of the grape. The wine was then aged in newer French oak barrels for eleven months. This vintage of our Pinot Noir serves up a delicious array of cherry and fresh fruit flavors combined with spicy notes and smooth tannins that make for an exceptionally enjoyable wine.
A deep red color very bright. The bouquet cherry and red berry with a hint of oak. The taste was mouth filling and crisp. Flavors of cherry, red berry, and way in the background was a hint of oak. A light to medium finish.
