2014 Estate "Third Alarm" Reserve Pinot Noir
We use old world techniques to make our Pinot Noir in small batches and "punch-down" the fruit by hand up to three times a day. After native yeast fermentation the wine is aged in French oak barrels for up to 11 months to achieve optimum balance and complexity. Our winemaking team taste through each barrel, and only a select few will earn the designation of "Third Alarm".
Our Pinot Noir displays a purple color with aromas of raspberry and vanilla spice. The full cherry palate is accented by a smooth finish of lingering, tart, blueberry-cola and light tannins. This multi-layered Pinot is lovely and rich; able to be enjoyed with a meal or on its own.
