2014 La Pommeraie Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 1.5L

94 WE, 93+ RP

This extraordinary single vineyard Pinot Noir gives an immediate impression of depth and concentration in the glass, with remarkably explosive aromas of dark plum and boysenberry. The palate is viscous and rich, yet light on its feet, with fine-polished tannins and an exceptionally balanced acidity.

Vineyard Notes:
This spectacular vineyard sits along the Laguna Ridge at the edge of the Green Valley AVA. Meticulously farmed and planted at a very high density of 2420 vines per acre, the vineyard is planted to Dijon Pinot Noir clones 777 & 828. Once a spectacular apple orchard, we pay homage to the Martinelli Family and the history of the site by naming the wine “La Pommeraie” – French for apple orchard.

Production Notes:
We have again included some whole cluster in the fermentation to give the wine a broader mouthfeel. Although delicious upon release, we expect this wine to improve with cellaring for 6-8 years from vintage date. Cold soaked for 10 days, indigenous yeast fermentation lasted for almost three weeks. Barrel aged for 16 months in 40% new French Oak.
