Winemaker 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

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Lithe, supple and deceptively generous. At first, this seems reticent, then it blossoms with beautifully rendered red berry, floral, mineral and cocoa flavors on a remarkably fragile frame. Graceful and elegant. Drink now through 2018. 325 cases made.

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 .

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
