Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Estate 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.
Food Pairings for Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Estate
Clear medium garnet hue. This youthful, wine boasts aromas of smoke, butterscotch, vanilla, strawberry, cherry, and anise. Dry, medium to light body, with lively acidity. Lighter, soft tannins, with complexity in the mouth--minerally, oak, tart cherries,and red fruits. This wine is balanced with a long finish. A lighter Pinot, but very layered.
