Pinot Noir

Heritage Reserve

 

Winemaker’s Notes

We set aside the finest barrel lots of our Carneros Pinot Noir for extended aging to create our “Heritage Reserve” Pinot Noir. Each barrel in this 10 barrel lot was chosen to express its own individuality in harmony with the final blend. This vintage is based around Dale Ricci’s well-established vineyard for its intense brooding fruit and balanced with the classic spiciness of the Haire and Iund vineyards. A bouquet reminiscent of roses, warm cherries and Kirsch liqueur leads to rich flavors of black cherry, cranberry, and hints of lavender, all finishing with hints of tobacco and spicy new oak. This wine is perfect for the collector’s cellar, and will continue to age gracefully for up to 10 years.

“Smoky, dried cherry and spice aromas follow through to a medium body, tangy acidity and firm tannins with lovely hints of barbecue.”
