Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Estate 2008
The fruit for this wine was blended from two blocks in our estate vineyard—mostly Gamay Beaujolais clone, with some Pommard and Wadenswil. The grapes were destemmed to a 1-ton fermenter. After a 5-day cold soak, fermentation began. When sugar was depleted to 10%, we added brandy. Fermentation slowed, finally stopping at 6% residual sugar. The must was pressed several days later, and aged in old French oak barrels for 18 months.

This dark ruby wine displays aromas of cherries, cassis, caramel, black cherries, oak, and spice. In the mouth, this sweet, jammy wine has a medium body and smooth acidity, with rich, dark fruits, spice, vanilla, and cloves, with a slightly oaky note in the finish. Drink over the next 10 years.
