2018 Pinot Noir
Succulent, elegant, and aromatic, revealing high tones of concentrated red fruit, cherry, plums, blackberry, black pepper, and a hint of toasty oak elements. Delicate, firm, and persistent with layers of dark fruit and a core of acidity that glides throughout the finish.
This was a cooler year with abundant rain in February followed by endless sunny days which produced bud break in the first and second week of March. The mild temperatures allowed for slow ripening-perhaps the longest duration we’ve had in a long time. This factor helped encourage even cluster development, strong yields, complex flavors, high acidity and excellent quality that will help contribute to the longevity of this vintage.
