Winemaker's Notes

"In a marketplace so overheated that we are seeing wineries rush their 2006 Pinot Noirs out the door, it is a pleasure to uncover a well-made, slightly older and more mature version of the grape. Solidly fruity but rich and somewhat layered in its aromas and delightfully running to early velvet in its palatefeel, this one is both well-filled and inviting now and yet is balanced to slight tartness at the finish suggesting that there is still more rounding and richness to come."
-Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine

"Our Pinot Noir matures in French oak casks for 14 months with a single racking. As Pinot Noir is a delicate varietal, too much air exposure will diminish fruit flavors and aromas. After aging in barrel, the lots are blended and bottled without filtration or fining, preserving the most delicate aromatics and flavors."
- Ivan Giotenov, Winemaker
