Vintages like 2009 show the amazing diversity of this vineyard. In fact, it was in 2003 (another very warm vintage) that we first divided up the Estate fruit into these two different and distinct bottlings. The older vines here have incredible root depth in our talc-y, sandy soils. These vines are amazingly vigorous and healthy as they have found deep pockets of nutrients, minerals and water that don't exist in our thinner, porous top-soils. While the young vines rely on power the older vines produce amazingly refined, minerally and suave Pinots. The difference in the wines from blocks that have both older and younger plants in them is startling. This bottling is amazingly red-fruited given the blacker nature of the regular Estate bottling. The pigmentation is far lighter and the tannins are finer and smoother throughout the wine. This is a harmonious and drop-dead beautiful bottling of Pinot. The texture is silky yet has a core of supple tannins that suggest long-term cellaring as a possibility. The red raspberry core is infused with a quartz-y sort of minerality to it and the finish is amazingly long. Again, this is a wine based on balance and refinement so even within a warm vintage this makes is mark by being discrete and feminine. 675 cases bottled.
"Vivid medium red. High-pitched red berry and floral aromas are complemented by deeper notes of anise and black cardamom. Sappy and precise, with deep raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a sexy rose pastille quality. Fine-grained tannins add shape and grip to the long, spicy, energetic finish. I'd bet that this very well-balanced wine will reward at least another five years of aging."
International Wine Cellar
"The 2009 Pinot Noir Estate Old Vine displays smokier oak notes, cherry and raspberry aromas, and a hint of earthy minerals. Elegant, friendly, and well-balanced, it is meant for drinking now and over the next 6 years."

Pinot Noir(PEE-noh nwahr)
Pinot Noir is a finicky grape. It only grows in
the right climate, with the right soils and the right care. Perhaps because
it is so difficult is why it is so loved. Pinot Noir hails from Burgundy, a region known for crafting the most collectible and sought-after wines from this varietal.
Not only does Pinot reign in Burgundy, it is also...Read More About Pinot Noir
