17 months in 25% new French oak
2014 Pinot Noir Pommard
Aromas of red berry fruits and earth. On the palate, there's a nice roundness, bright acidity, and integrated tannins, with flavors of juicy cranberry, raspberry, and a very long finish.
The grapes were harvested by hand and 75% destemmed. The fruit underwent a 5-day cold soak. After fermentation began, the must was pumped over and punched down twice daily until dry and pressed. The wine settled in a tank overnight, and was then racked to 25% new French oak barrels to age for 17 months until bottling.
