Appellation: Pays d’Oc
100% Pinot Noir
De-stemmed grapes spend 3 days macerating with skin contact at 50°F, followed by fermentation at 77°F. An additional 5 days maceration follows before pressing. Only the first press is included in final wine. Half of the wine is then aged in new oak barrels for 4 months and the other half remains in stainless steel vats. The wine is blended and then spends an additional 2 months in vat prior to bottling.
Bright medium ruby.
Very elegant with aromas of fresh strawberry, cherry, and sweet spices with a hint of vanilla.
Medium-bodied with ripe, silky tannins and firm acidity and a long finish.
