TASTING NOTES:

The 2014 Oregon Pinot Noir has aromas of Bing cherry, Marionberry and boysenberry with hints of sandalwood and anise. On the palate, flavors of candied black cherry and licorice lead to soft, velvety tannins on the mid-palate and a long, elegant finish.

WINEGROWING NOTES:

We source fruit from Oregon’s Willamette Valley because its growing conditions produce world-class Pinot Noirs. The vineyards are flanked by low rolling hills with the Oregon Coast Range to the west and the Cascade Mountains to the east. The cooler climate stresses the vines, creating smaller, more concentrated fruit, making for a wine with more flavor, color and tannin. The distinctive minerality in the wine comes from the valley’s volcanic soil and silt. The 2014 growing season was one of the warmest on record with low rainfall and a long, warm summer, allowing the fruit to fully ripen and be picked at optimal flavors.

WINEMAKING NOTES:

After harvest, fruit from each vineyard is hand-sorted and de-stemmed before being fermented in open top fermenters and punched down twice daily, a gentler and more traditional form of cap management for Pinot Noir that helps to retain the varietal’s soft tannin structure. The wine was then aged in 25% new Burgundy oak and 75% 1-year old Chardonnay barrels for just under a year.

Tasting Notes
The 2014 Santa Barbara Pinot Noir has aromas of sweet cherries and baking spices with a hint of smoke. On the palate, ripe red fruit flavors are followed by elegantly balanced acidity and soft, velvety tannins.
Production Notes
We sourced fruit from Santa Barbara County, part of the Central Coast AVA, because of its ideal growing conditions for creating the style of Pinot Noir that we like to make. Vineyards closest to the coast experience cool, foggy mornings and warmer afternoons, bringing out ripe fruit flavors in the grapes. Fruit from vineyards towards the center of the county add cherry flavors, as well as spice and minerality to the wine. Vineyards in the coldest and windiest areas have smaller yields, giving the wine its structure and tannins. The 2014 growing season began with low rainfall in the winter and spring and was followed by a moderate summer, resulting in a shorter growing season and an earlier harvest. Despite the short growing season, the fruit had great color and intensity, creating a fruit forward, richly textured wine. The wine was aged in 57% new French oak barrels and 43% 1- and 2-year old French oak barrels.
