Vineyard Notes: Fruit is sourced from Scribe’s Estate vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain in the southern Mayacamas volcanic range. Clones 667, Martini, Pommard, Chalone, Mt. Eden and Wadenswil are planted in volcanic tuff and Huichica Loam.
Vintage Notes: A cold winter with average rainfall delayed typical budbreak by a couple of weeks. The dry and warm spring that followed hastened the vines’ growth and a temperate summer provided an ideal condition for the start of veraison. Late summer heat waves prompted an early harvest beginning on August 13th.
Winemaking Notes: Hand-harvested Pinot Noir was foot treaded to release juice and allow for skin contact and color extraction. The fruit was whole cluster pressed and settled for 24 hours prior to being racked off its gross lees. The wine fermented at 50F in a stainless- steel tank and was bottled on October 13th with 11.5 g/L of residual sugar. Fermentation finished in bottle over the following weeks. No dosage or disgorging.
Tasting Notes: Enjoy notes of raspberry, lavender and tarragon.
