Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Rebecca's Reserve 2009
The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted and destemmed to 1.5-ton fermenter. After four days, fermentation began. The must was punched down twice daily until fermentation was complete, then pressed after the cap fell. The wine settled overnight, then was racked to 25% new French oak barrels and aged for 19 months.
Food Pairings for Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Rebecca's Reserve
This ruby-garnet wine is full of spice and dark berries. Cherries, pepper, vanilla, nutmeg, and violet aromas fill the glass. The spices are on the palate as well, with allspice, anise, cinnamon, and clove. Vanilla and cherries, with a hint of cranberry and cola fill the mouth, perched on a structure of dry yet firm tannins. The vibrant acidity in this wine livens the fruit, and the baking spices lead into a very long finish.
