This is a darker style pinot with red and blackberry aromas along with cherry, kirsch, cinnamon and clove. Nice flavors of Bing cherry, black pepper and a nice earthiness. Silky tannins and a subtle oak influence. Lots of smoked herbs and spices with a pleasant minerality. Great structure and balance. Really nice. 3/10/12

This is a bold, more masculine Pinot noir. Yet it holds to its heritage of being a translucent crystaline-garnet coior rather than dark, moving toward opaque. Its boldness is in flavor rather than girth and color: dark cherry notes with earth and clove in the mid-palate, finishing with a long black pepper that lingers for minutes. It boasts rich granular tanins that go well with meats, whether duck or even steak.This is a winning example of a delicious Pinot.

Dark in color. This is a "large" pinot. Big up front mix of spices and deep, dark fruit. Loads of pepper, clove, cinnamon, purple and red berry fruit. Big tannin, but nicely structured and balanced. A bold, lush pinot that lingers nice and long. - Tasted at Halleck Vineyard Feb 2011

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 an open top 5 ton fermentation tank and the wine was then racked into barrels.
