2019 Pinot Noir Barrel Selection
Carefully selected, this Pinot Noir displays a noticeable floral scent, with delicate tones of dark fruit, vanilla, tobacco leaves, forest floor, and spices. Elegant and concentrated, juicy energy fills the mid-palate with pure fruit, a perfect core of acidity mingles throughout the long finish.
This was an excellent vintage that grew a bountiful crop with great structure. The March miracle left the soil with plenty of moisture to support the plants through the end of May. The long, warm summer saw very few extreme heat events, allowing the fruit to set the stage for vibrant and expressive flavors. The long, relatively mild finish to the season helped preserve the freshness and finesse with abundant hang time providing great color and soft tannins.
