This 2019 Pinot Noir is gorgeous bright, light, and juicy delight. It reminds me of those strawberry candies in a bowl at grandma’s house. So crushable! Pairs well with gourmet hotdogs on brioche buns.
Planted in 2003 on the precipice of the Trout Creek Canyon, this vineyard has been immaculately cared for by Garth Purdy from day one, and he continues to do so. This south facing vineyard has sandy soil that is dotted with large granite stones, producing spectacular Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from two large terraces.
Each block and clone were kept separate and fermented with different percentages of whole cluster depending on what the stems looked and tasted like for each batch. Pressed after about 3 weeks on skins and kept separate in neutral barrels. Ambient ferment, wild malolactic fermentation, unfined and unfiltered.
