Ferrari-Carano Pinot Noir Anderson Valley 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The vintage started with some good rain in December 2012 which carried the 2013 Pinot Noir through another drought cycle. The growing season was perfect, warm through the summer into September and then cooling down again in October. Vines ripened a bit on the early side. A big crop was set in spite of the drought conditions and extensive thinning had to be done to balance the vines.

Ferrari-Carano vineyard practices are customized to match the particular characteristics of each vineyard to help the vines produce the best fruit possible, and to in turn, achieve the best wine possible. Directed by Don Carano and orchestrated under the supervision of Steve Domenichelli, Director of Vineyard Operations, these practices are extremely labor intensive. Steve and his team implement irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellis system and canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and cane selection for each vineyard site and each block within a vineyard. Because of Sonoma County's diverse geological makeup, even within one vineyard parcel there may be several different types of soil with different degrees of nutrients for vines and water-holding capacity. In addition, Steve and his team practice sustainable farming techniques, such as recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion, add desirable nutrients back to the soil and to attract desirable insects, and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient recycling.

Floral notes of rose petal with ripe red cherry and red currant. Tart in the mouth with notes of black cherry, licorice and a pop of acidity which shows ahead of some leather and earth. 88 pts
