Description
 

2012 was an outstanding vintage for Pinot in Northern California and this wine will show why. Anderson Valley is known for it’s wild Penny Royal plants, giving this wine early notes of eucalyptus, mint, which have recently began to integrate as cedar wood notes with the five years of aging. Dark cherries, vanilla, and subtle baking spices are followed by a light and smooth finish.
Pair with duck breast and a balsamic cherry reduction sauce, and mushroom risotto.

Winemaking
Grapes were destemmed whole berry and cold soaked for four days. After an eight-day fermentation with twice daily punchdowns, the grapes were pressed off and the juice was barreled into two neutral, one once filled, and one twice filled French Oak barrels where they aged for 16 months.
