Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby-red, with a spicy, vibrant bouquet of raspberry, kirsch, white pepper, truffle and mocha. Characteristic dark fruits comingle with the structured mid-palette yielding to multiple layers of fruit, floral notes, wild game all wrapped in expansive vanilla undertones. Nice balanced acidity. Finishes long with subtle nuances of earth blending nicely with the tight, fine tannins. Packs plenty of flavor punch without any excess weight. 5% whole cluster fermentation and 10% wood fermentation. This full-bodied Pinot will reward cellaring. It resonates on the palate with a finish lasting 30+ seconds. Age 5-12+ years
My Notes:

About Lachini Vineyards:

Ron & Marianne Lachini began with a dream to start a small, family-owned estate vineyard focused entirely on producing uncompromising Pinot Noir. We were guided by our values, love of family, fine Burgundies and life! We believe that the vineyard is the wine. As such, our goal remains to nurture our 45-acre vineyard’s distinctive terroir and produce world class Pinot Noirs of prodigious quality for generations to come. Our emphasis is on the meticulous management of each vine through biodynamic farming, while combining state of the art winemaking and old world technique to handcraft wines of complexity, grace and profoundness - each one, we believe, a reflection of it's soul and unique place .
