Flowers Pinot Andreen Galepinot Noir Sonoma Red 2006
Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and fully destemmed with no crushing. Moderate cold soaks (4-5 days), warm fermentations (85-90° F), and minimal punchdowns (twice a day or less) were done this year in order to adapt to what nature gave us. Total skin contact ranged from 11-18 days with all fermentations being carefully basket pressed and put to barrel on full fermentation lees for ML. Racking was minimal with only one assemblage being done in the spring to allow the blend to "marry" in barrel for a few months before bottling. Mostly native yeast and ML with only small lots conducted using cultured burgundy isolates.

The seductive, soft 2006 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard does not reveal the complexity of the two previous 2005s. It offers plenty of red and black fruits intermixed with earth and spice.
