Winemaker's Notes

Our 2000 Pinot Noir echoes the style of previous vintages, by virtue of the gently techniques we continue to employ in the cellar. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks with Prisse de Mousse yeast, pressed during the last days of fermentation, and reached as soon as the wine finished malolactic fermentation. Just a touch of oak was used during aging to round out the flavors and enhance complexity.

The resulting wine's aromas of strawberry and raspberry mingle with the distinct sensation of vanilla-cream. Good acid contributes to the balance and compliments the medium body. As the silky tannins fade on the inviting finish, the wine's classic pinot aromas gather once again.
