2015 Reserve Pinot Noir
Our 2015 Reserve Pinot Noir reveals hints of a warm growing season, opening with aromatics of black cherry, cedar and licorice. The palate presents elegant tannins, carrying flavors of ripe cherry and raspberry. This wine can be enjoyed now; however, was constructed for longevity with proper cellaring.
Warm and temperate spring weather prompted an early bud break as well as perfect weather for ideal fruit set, thereby producing larger, luscious clusters with lots of berries. The consistently dry weather and summer sun beautifully ripened the fruit until the end of August when a cold front came in and slowed down the assumed trajectory of our harvest. The cooler temperatures slowed down the sugar accumulation of the fruit and allowed for a longer hang time on the vine. Consequently, we were able to bring in the fruit as the flavors presented themselves.
