Product guide note

Pinot Noir grapes are notoriously difficult to grow, but when it's done right the wine is very rewarding. This wine has very intense aromas of strawberry, cranberry and cherries. It is medium bodied, and very smooth.

Production note

The grapes were picked then hand-sorted in the vineyard. Upon arriving at the winery, grapes are sorted a second time before being destemmed. Whole berry fermentation was started using native yeasts in small, open top tanks. Three times each day the cap is gently punched down by hand. After fermentation, the wine was transferred into a combination of 43% new and one and two year-old French cooperage. The wine aged for almost a year before being bottled.
