Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Cardiac Hill 2009
The fruit was destemmed to a 1.5-ton fermenter. After a six-day cold soak, fermentation began. The vat was punched down 2-3 times daily until fermentation was complete; then once a day until the cap fell. The must was pressed, settled overnight, and then racked to 25% new French oak barrels. The wine was racked and blended the following spring, then returned to barrels for additional aging, 18 months total.

Clear garnet, with aromas of black cherries, cloves, and notes of maple, mint, and stem. On the palate, this wine shows lively acidity and mild tannins, with flavors of cherry cola and plum, and spicy black currant emerging in a very long finish.
