Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The grapes for the 2013 Pinot Noir come from the Moretti and Mueller vineyards in the Carneros apellation. The Mueller vineyard is located at the southern end of Carneros, very close to the Sonoma border. It is a level vineyard, with characterisitcs typical of the area; thin clay soils, frequent winds and significant cloud cover. The Moretti vineyard is on a mild slope, with clay-loam soils. Both of these vineyards provide ideal conditions for a deliberate and controlled ripening period for Pinot Noir, creating balanced, structured wines with intensity and complexity.
Production Notes
2013 was a great year for all varieties, especially reds which show great color, structure and intensity. It was a relatively early harvest which helped avoid exposure to late fall rains. There was one early heat event that occurred long before grapes would be susceptible to heat damage, and two rain events, neither of which proved significant. The early harvest ensured full optimal ripeness and great flavor development.
Winemaker Notes
“This Pinot Noir showcases dark cherry and plum aromas with hints of savory soy, mushroom and spice. With rich, luscious, full enveloping tannins on the front, this wine makes a smooth transition from bright cherry and blackberry notes to toffee, vanilla, and mocha flavors on the finish. This is an elegant, approachable and very food-friendly wine.” – Joe Shirley
