Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Cardiac Hill 2007
The grapes were destemmed into a 1-ton fermenter. After a 7 day cold soak, commercial yeast was added. The fermenters were punched down twice daily, until dry. The fermenters were pressed after the cap fell, and allowed to settle overnight. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels for 18 months.
Food Pairings for Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Cardiac Hill
Our third bottling of Cardiac Hill Pinot Noir displays complex aromas—red currants, pie cherries, cranberries, with hints of violets, tobacco, and marzipan. On the palate, this wine exhibits a delicate structure with lighter young tannins and bright acidity. At first, the flavors reveal pie cherries with sappy oak and white pepper. With time, red currant, raspberry, cranberry, plum, and cola emerge, with notes of creamy vanilla, almond, and a whisper of minerality. Spicy cherries underscore a very long finish.
