T.R Elliott Queste Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the T.r Elliott "Queste" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2005 : WINEMAKER NOTES: The color is a youthful garnet red with a deep ruby rim on the glass. Fresh spiced peach and raspberries, plus vanilla and cola are blended with aromas of creamy black cherry pie. Black cherry and vanilla flavors integrate into the soft tannin structure while smooth cola texture leads to a lingering finish of plum and almond.T.R ELLIOTT "QUESTE" RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY PINOT NOIR 2005

TR Elliott is dedicated to producing small lots of Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley. Located in the heart of Sonoma County, California, this grape-growing region combines ideal soils and climate to create Pinot Noir of world-class quality. My search for the perfect bottle of wine began in Sonoma County with the harvest of 1978. For the next quarter-century I worked with the finest wine growers and vintners in the region. In 2002 I founded TR Elliott with my wife and two children, opening a new chapter in my pursuit of excellence. I invite you to join our quest.... The grapes, picked early in the morning to assure perfect temperature, are hand sorted before being transferred into small, open-top fermenting vats for a "cold soak" to enhance the colors and flavors of this otherwise shy varietal. We include some whole clusters during fermentation to assure carbonic maceration, a process that elevates aromas. After fermentation, we gently press the must, retaining only the free run. To ensure the highest quality, vineyard clonal selections are vinted separately. The wine is aged in French oak barrels carefully selected for each clone, for nine to fifteen months. Finally, just before bottling, barrels are selected one by one for the final blends. Consistent with our philosophy of letting the fruit express itself, we bottle our wines with a minimum of filtration. The 2006 vintage was neither filtered nor fined. Read less
