2017 Haas Vineyard Pinot Noir
93 pts - Gold - North Coast Wine Competition
Deep garnet hues, transparent and rich. Nose is a blend of red fruits, cherries and minerals. Leads with full rich flavors of cherry, a mid-palate of minerals and spice with a long rich finish. Great mouth feel of silky texture, opulent, unctuous.
Grapes were picked before sunrise, hand-sorted and de-stemmed then cold-soaked for five days before going through whole berry fermentation and receiving two punch-downs per day. Fermentation took approximately 12-16 days in an open top five-ton fermentation tank and the wine was then racked to barrels.
30% new French Oak, 30% one-year-old French Oak and 40% older. Wine remained in barrel for ten months with one racking at five months during blending.
