2014 Martaella Vineyard Pinot Noir 750ml

93 WE, 92 RP

Deep ruby in color. Aromas of raspberry, Bing cherry and sarsaparilla leap from the glass. On the palate the juicy mouthfeel is supported by cherry and blackberry flavors, elevating through the mid-palate to fine grain tannins on the finish. An intriguing blend of power and restraint, this Pinot Noir is both savory and fruit forward.

Vineyard Notes:
This is now the third release of this spectacular single-vineyard Pinot Noir from our estate vineyard at the winery that is named in honor of the mothers of Joe Anderson and Mary Dewane. Only Heirloom Pinot Noir clones were chosen for this intense but delicate Pinot Noir.

Production Notes:
The grapes are harvested at night and the fruit is rigorously hand sorted prior to partial destemming. Then the fruit is berry selected before open top fermentation. With ideal fruit and stem maturity, we decided for the third year to ferment several clones with ~25% whole cluster for this vintage. Cold soaked for 8 days, indigenous yeast fermentation lasted for almost two weeks, Aged in 36% new French Oak for 16 months.
