Winemaker's Notes

Classic Kanzler meets classic Burgundy and produces a wine that combines the best of both worlds. The summer and fall of 2011 was one of the coolest growing seasons ever in the coastal regions of Northern California wine country. The result is a lighter, more elegant, lower alcohol wine reminiscent of the great French Pinots of the Cote d'Or while remaining distinctively California at it's core. Balanced and complex, the wine exhibits the characteristic Kanzler Vineyards fruit and spice nose. Fresh strawberry and red currants wrapped in earthy undertones with notes of berry bramble, Graham crackers, roasted coffee, fried sage and Chinese 5 spice. Bing cherry in the mid-palate, makes for a fresh, vibrant and juicy mouth feel. Firm tannins with a touch of grip hold a lengthy, dry finish with lingering notes of berry, citrus and even peach blossom. This is youthful wine, very enjoyable now, that will get better and better with age.
