2010 Pinot Noir Bella Una Russian River Valley 750ml

Rich and seductive aromas of vine ripened blackberry mingle with cumin, sandalwood and clove. On the palate the wine’s juicy mouthfeel is supported by ample acidity building with wild berry fruit through the mid-palate to the fine grain tannins on the finish.

2010 Pinot Noir Bella Una Russian River Valley 750ml
 
About This Wine:
‘Bella Una’ translated from Latin means beautiful together. Our winemaker selects barrels that reflect what he feels are the best expression of the vintage. In 2010 only Heirloom Pinot Noir clones from our Martaella Estate Vineyard were chosen for this intense but delicate Pinot Noir. The grapes were harvested at night or early morning then the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to destemming and then berry selected before open top fermentation.

Tasting Notes:
Rich and seductive aromas of vine ripened blackberry mingle with cumin, sandalwood and clove. On the palate the wine’s juicy mouthfeel is supported by ample acidity building with wild berry fruit through the mid-palate to the fine grain tannins on the finish. An intriguing blend of power and restraint, this Pinot Noir is both savory and delicately sweet.

Vineyard Notes:
To describe the 2010 growing I season I like to use the analogy of riding a roller coaster. Abundant rains in the winter 2009 and spring 2010 broke a three year drought and replenished groundwater for the season. Spring and summer along the Sonoma Coast was persistently foggy and cold, resulting in only a handful of days over 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The cold growing season pushed harvest back nearly one month and produced miniscule yields. The small, but exceptional, crop we harvested produced grapes with crisp acidity, and intense flavors.
