Halleck Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Hallberg Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

These grapes were picked at night, hand-sorted and destemmed. They cold soaked for 5 days before going through whole berry fermentation receiving 2 punch-downs per day. Fermentation took 12 days in a open top 5 ton fermentation tank and the wine was then racked to barrels. 2006 HALLBERG PINOT NOIR Russian River Valley Beautifully oaked and full of tightly coiled fruit strength, the nose of this clearly very youthful Pinot offers scents of sweet red and dark cherries, panetone, subtle smoky notes, vanilla and hints of white pepper in a focused and intriguing mix. It is tighter on the palate, but just as focused, with Bing cherry, panetone and lots of tobacconist shop spice. Needing three to six years to reveal all its dimensions, it will drink brilliantly within the next twelve to eighteen months. 295 cases produced. Don Gillette Napa Valley Winery Exchange Oak: 100% French oak, 30% new
