Tasting Notes
Our 2014 Red Hills Estate Pinot Noir captivates the nose with aromas of dried rose petals, mountain strawberry, red velvet cake and fresh porcini mushroom. The dense, juicy palate of cherry liqueur is spiced with cinnamon candy, cardamom and hints of Tahitian vanilla bean. The succulent finish is focused with balanced acidity, offering notes of powdered cocoa and wild raspberry as it lingers and evolves.
Our Red Hills Estate is a 23 acre vineyard in the Dundee Hills AVA. This gentle, south-facing slope ranges in elevation from 360 to 570 feet and is composed of basaltic Jory soil. Vines here range from 20 year-old self-rooted Pommard clones planted to 800 vines per acre, to Dijon clones planted to 4,800 vines per acre. Farming is meticulous and detailed, utilizing sustainable practices. This vineyard produces one of our finest vineyard designate wines.
Fruit for the 2014 vintage was hand picked on September 19th. The fruit was hand sorted and soaked cold for five to ten days, after which native yeast fermentation was allowed to proceed under temperature-controlled conditions with 9% whole cluster contribution in both wooden and stainless steel open top fermentors. During primary fermentation, tanks were punched down up to three times per day. After limited post-fermentation maceration, the wine was sent via gravity to 47% new French oak barrels and aged for 13 months.
