Eminence Road Farm Elizabeth's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
Hand picked grapes were foot crushed, whole cluster, and put into oneton bins to ferment by ambient yeast. The grapes received once daily punchdowns for 8 days before being bucketed into the half-ton bladder press. Settled juice was pumped into old French oak barrels to finish fermentation which continued into June of 2017. In September the wine was racked off its lees and gravity bottled by hand without fining or filtration. Deep cherry, sandlewood and earth aromas. Delicate in the mouth, very dry with concentrated cherry and cinnimon flavors. Delicate tannins and a long, dry finish.
