The Dreaming Tree Pinot Noir 2015

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

A bit tarry, a bit floral, some cherry and simple raspberry aromas. On the palate this brings a somewhat candied red fruit palate of cherries and raspberry Jolly rancher and a touch of tarry earthiness towards the finish.

Winemaking: The grapes were cold soaked, fermented with Pinot Noir-specific yeast, and aged in barrels for nine months. Tasting Notes: Flavors and aromas of black cherry, wild strawberry, and toasty caramel. Complex with generous fruit and supple tannins. Food Pairing: Roast chicken or pork, grilled salmon, and mushroom risotto.

2014 Vintage: The 2014 growing season was hot and dry, pushing harvest up to the earliest to date. Fortunately, nighttime temperatures still dipped into the 50s, which was great for maintaining the natural fruit acidity. September also cooled a little, providing much needed time to catch up on getting all of the grapes in. In October, the heat returned and ripened the fruit for the balance of harvest. Overall, this year delivered big fruit expression, great tannin development, and nice ripeness across all varietals.

2013 Vintage: The 2013 California growing season was dry, starting in early spring and extending throughout summer. The typical winds coming off Monterey Bay and going into the Salinas Valley brought wet, foggy nights in the 50s, but the days were a little hotter than normal. Harvest started almost a month earlier than average, but extended all the way through November. The flavor development and lack of pressure to pick made for some very expressive and balanced wines. Winemaking: The grapes were cold soaked, fermented with Pinot Noir-specific yeast, and aged for 9 months in oak. Tasting Notes: Flavors and aromas of ripe cherry, wild strawberry, and caramel. Complex with supple tannins. Food Pairing: Roast chicken or pork, grilled salmon, and mushroom risotto.
