Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Barrel Select 2007
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.
