The fruit for this Pinot Noir came from selected high-density blocks planted to Dijon clones. After harvest, the clusters were hand-sorted and cold-soaked for three to five days to intensify fruit character, color and body. Some lots were fermented with native yeasts to enhance vineyard expression. The wine was cellared for 14 months in our temperature and humidity controlled barrel rooms.
The 2007 Nielson Pinot Noir displays aromas of dark plum, blueberry, cinnamon, clove, and hints of floral and smoke. The flavor profile has a core of dark cherry and dark plum, with hints of brown sugar and allspice. With firm structure and velvety texture, this wine is backed by a long, lingering, smoky finish.
"With a pretty color of shining ruby, this Pinot has flamboyant flavors of ripe red cherries, red plums, red currants and dusty spices, with an edge of mocha and sandalwood. Just beautiful. Now through 2013."
