Winemaker Notes - A lovely, precocious wine with a brilliant, deep garnet color and seductive, lush aromatics, in this wine spice and fruits dominate. Rich pie cherry and dried cherry impressions, with plummy blue and black fruit for depth and richness anchor the palate and lead to a sweet fruit entry. Tea leaves and spices are assertive, whether showing gingerbread, molasses, nutmeg, cardamon or delicate black pepper. The balance is almost perfect, with great acid, excellent weight without being ponderous, no alcohol apparent, nice breadth and length on the palate, and a bright, clean and elegant finish. Elegance, richness and balance what we all aspire to. And what a standard-bearing pinot noir should reflect.
Our 2011 3 Vineyard Pinot begins with perfect garnet color, as your nose is immediately met with elegant cherry, black cane fruit, and beautiful floral aromatics (at the intensity of a florist shop or big orange stamens). The palate shows low to moderate tannins, silk nap, a nice bitter accent on finish, and age-worthy acid. Warm a sip on the tongue - you peel layers of pie cherry, chocolate, sage, mint, rose petal, juicy summer strawberries, slight toast, and vanilla. Truly elegant, and a very appropriate representation of 2011 intensity and balance.
