Ravines Pinot Noir Finger Lakes 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Delicate aromas of ripe cherry, red plum, sultry spices and earthiness create a sensual and engaging complexity. Grown in the cool climate of the Finger Lakes where the grapes ripen slowly, developing complexity and preserving acids required for fine winemaking, this Pinot Noir was grown at low yields of 2 1/2 tons of fruit to the acre, which encourages a concentration of flavors and the expression of sous bois aromas. The grapes were carefully hand-picked and fermented on their skins for 3 weeks in open-top fermentors, recieving gentle punch-downs twice daily to ensure a gentle extraction which allows for flavor and aromas without harsh tannins. The wine then ages 10 months in high quality, older French Oak barrels and recieves another 2 years of bottle aging where it further evolves.
