Deep ruby, with a slightly lighter rim. The nose has a plethora of red and black fruits including raspberry, cranberry, blackberry, and black cherry. The fruit notes are balanced nicely by the complex earth and spice driven components like licorice... Alex Lallos.

The stunning 2006 Pinot Noir is a realization of everything I suspect Rolfe dreamed of when planting the first vines in the early 1980�s. Using 20% whole clusters and matured for 18 months in 30% new French oak, this wine is distinguished by its spine-tingling tension and tautness on the palate. Its ethereal balance and intensity of fruit suggest this could easily age over 10+ years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Picked by hand into small, 10kg cases allowing the fruit to arrive at the winery'ssorting table undamaged and intact. This wine represents many small parcels of different clones, vine ages, and micro-sites within a single Rippon Vineyard. They were picked and fermented separately in 10, 2-ton stainless steel fermenters. 15% whole cluster component. Each parcel is fermented and matured apart before blending. Thewinery's resident yeast population (non-inoculated) started fermenting on the 3rd-9th day of cuvaison. The ferments reached maximum temperatures of 29-34 degrees celcius and reached dryness at days 9-13.
