Ryan :: 2013 Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

Ryan :: 2013 Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

     Wafting aromas of bright strawberry and blueberry interweave with a deep, intense, earthy, enchanting palate of black cherry, sassafras and limestone minerality. This wine is big and taut and begs for bold cuisine. The generous tannins are firm yet smooth and continue into a provocative and long finish.

In 2013 we saw decreasing yields due to the second year of a drought with only 6.5 inches of rain for the entire season.  Warm spring temperatures brought on an early bud break, but fortunately remained warm with no threats of frost.  The summer months were fairly mild with abundant sunshine allowing us to pick the grapes with high acid and mature flavors. 

We picked the Ryan vineyard in three separate passes from September 4th to September 21st. Each lot was pressed 14 days after harvest, racked by gravity to French oak barrels, then aged without racking in those barrels, 30% new, for sixteen months. The lots were then combined and the resultant wine was bottled without filtration, as always.
