Winemaker's Notes

This winegrowing season was exceptional. Bud break came in early February, and the grapes were able to hang on the vine until October 13th, which allowed additional time to develop on the vine. The wine was aged in 100% new François Frères barrels for ten months and this amazing integration of singular oak seasoning sets this vintage of Cambria Rae's Pinot Noir apart from others.

This limited production Pinot Noir is expected to be particularly age-worthy due to the extended amount of time the fruit spent on the vine, the small crop from which the fruit came, and the prominent acid structure. Only 524 cases were produced.

"This Rae's Pinot Noir opens up with sweet cherry, tobacco and earthy aromas. Followed by a velvety softness in the mouth, this wine is full-bodied and graces the palate with a long, blueberry finish."
-Fred Holloway, Winemaker
