2014 Pinot Noir Dijon 115
September 20, 2014
25% new French oak for 13 months
Aromas of cranberry, violet, and cola. On the palate, this youthful, old world style wine, light acidity and integrated tannins, easy on the palate with a nice earthiness punctuated by pie cherries and plums.
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 13 months until bottling.
