2016 Pinot Noir, Paul Bosc Estate Vineyard

Paul Bosc and Amélie Boury's Winemaker's Notes

There appears to be two distinct styles of Pinot in the world of wine these days: big, jammy fruit bombs typical of hot climates, and a more delicate, nuanced and balanced wine with silky tannins that is more typical in cooler climates. Our Pinot Noir is most often described in the latter style. It should remind you of strawberries and violets on the nose with a hint of mushrooms. On the palate the tannins are nicely integrated giving the wine structure and ageability.

Miguel Fontalvo's vineyard manager's Notes

Pinot Noir is known the world over as the “heart break grape” because of how difficult it is to grow well. The slightest bit of moisture in the air can spell trouble so it is critical that we stay vigilant during the growing season. Our sustainable practices mean we are in the vineyards routinely so we can spot the beginnings of a problem and stop it from developing.
