Food Pairings for Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Barrel Select
The fruit was destemmed into 1-ton fermenters, with a 5-7 day cold soak. The must was inoculated with several strains of commercial yeast. To concentrate the flavors in the Pinot Noirs, we removed a portion of the liquid from the fermenters and made some rose. The must was pressed when dry, and allowed to settle overnight then racked to barrels for aging. A panel of winemakers and staff selected the barrels for the blend in June, 2008. The wine was blended, then racked back to barrel for several months of additional aging.
This youthful wine is a clear medium-garnet red hue. Initially, the earthy, smoky, sappy aromas give way to tart cherries, cassis, rhubarb, cranberries, and violets. In the mouth, the wine is medium-light in body, with a low level of dry tannins. Flavors include strawberries, cherries, raspberry, oak, and truffle, with allspice notes on a long finish.
