2012 Patland Pinot Noir
 
About This Wine:
Bright Garnet hue; Complex aromas of vibrant raspberry, boysenberry, amaretto, floral spice, sandalwood and sweet perfume excite the senses. Intense flavors of ripe cherry, chocolate covered fig, jasmine, clove and cedar spice are supported by integrated French oak, ripe tannin, with a classic Pinot Noir elegance and bright acidity. Well endowed for Russian River Pinot yet rich and fleshy in a subtle way, this puppy is tasting great now but shall age gracefully for many years to come.

Winemaker Notes:
Winemaker Jay Buoncristiani personally selected the clones and the exact rows to harvest from two of Erhen Jordan’s vineyards in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley. He was particularly excited to craft a wine for this new Pinot project since it is only his second time being involved with the finicky variety (the other project was based out of Anderson Valley). Jay attributes the high quality results to many factors including the handling of the fruit, time on the skins, oak barrel regime and aging process. However, for this wine, one of the most important factors for the resulting profile and quality was the combination of choices made in the vineyards as harvest approached driven by how the flavors of the sites’ clonal diversity progressed during ripening. Jay says this is a Pinot Noir that is not to miss by both fans and non-fans of the variety!
