Winemaker's Notes:

We love to pamper and caress this wine! The Kiamberell is made with very little intervention letting the fruit to completely express itself. We begin the vinification with a six day cold-soak, followed by twice daily gentle punch downs in small fermentation vessels. In 2008, we performed a saigne’e, bleeding off juice for greater concentration of skin to juice. Fermentation was completed by native yeasts adding to the complexity. After a very gentle pressing the wine went directly to barrel and was racked only twice.

Tasting Notes:

The ’08 Kiamberell expresses great Pinot Noir purity of fruit. While very similar to the ‘07 in aroma and flavors, the red fruits of dried cranberry, raspberry and Asian spice, the ’08 Kiamberell’s is more precocious. A fantastic aroma is displayed which fills the room, and the flavors coat the mouth with great complexity, richness and silkiness. I stated last year that the ’07 may be the best Pinot we have made, but the 2008 is the most hedonistic. There is no need to figure this wine out, it just tastes delicious.
