2013 Solomon Hills Pinot Noir

na

Hand harvested at night, and fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentations.   Then aged for 18 months in French oak; 40% new. This wine was bottled unfiltered.

Vibrant aromatics of fennel, cinnamon, and blue fruits dominate the aromatics at the moment. These carry through to the spicey fruits on the substantially masculine palate with integrated acidity, and great length.
