Winemaker Notes
A beautiful bouquet of cranberry, boysenberry, redwood bark, and a hint of red licorice waft from this 2014 Pinot Noir. Then an enchantingly juicy, mouthwatering palate of perfumey raspberry, red cherry and cassis roll smoothly into a perky sweet-tart, persistent, rose petal finish.
Production
Coming off of the third year of drought, the Central Coast wine region was expecting to see lower yields with struggling vines. Much to our surprise the vines responded well to the sunny winter and spring days, and were very productive. Although it was a very dry year we saw brilliant sunshine through the growing season with early harvest dates. The 2014 vintage turned out to be great, with good yields and intense flavors. After hand harvesting, the grapes were fermented with native yeast in small open-top fermenters. After fourteen days, the wines were pressed, settled over night, and then moved to Calera’s barrel cellar. The wine was aged without racking, in French oak barrels, 10% new, for eleven months. The individual barrel lots were combined prior to bottling.
