After a year off from making the Pinot Noir in 2014 (fires are a bummer) the wine is back with a triumphant return. In 2013, our first year working with the Pinot Noir, Morgan and I flipped a figurative coin to decide whether or not to make Rosé or a Blanc de Noirs. I am as happy as a New England Patriots fan right now that the coin flip went the way it did. When the tiny clusters arrived at the winery, we foot-stomped the grapes and let them soak for about two hours to bring out a little color and more of the incredible northern Mendo Pinot fruit character we get from this vineyard. Even though picked at incredibly low sugars, the wine never feels underripe. It has gorgeous color and intense red fruits. This wine, once it has opened up, shouts from the glass. The acid is bright, and the wine should live for a long time. 4 g/l dosage
