2006 The Farm Vineyards Pinot Noir
Brilliant opalescent; dark cherry to earth-tones
Brilliant opalescent, leaning from garnet to purple. Dark cherry with earthy notes, hints of forest floor and mushroom. Mostly cherry with a mid-palate of forest and minerality, complemented by earthy spice tones. Long finish and rich mouth feel. Absolutely delightful and aging with grace.

These grapes were picked at night, hand-sorted and destemmed. They cold soaked for 5 days before going through whole berry fermentation receiving 2 punch-downs per day. Fermentation took 12 days in a open top 5 ton fermentation tank and were then racked to barrels.
