Sable Mountain Pinot Noir

2014 Sable Mountain Pinot Noir

Wine Profile

Characteristic aromas/flavors: This new offering displays complex aromas of raspberry, smoked meat, juniper berry, sage, and cigar box. The palate exhibits flavors of strawberry, huckleberry, caramel, white pepper and Assam tea.

Structure: Plush entry and fruit-driven mid-palate lead into a prodigious but finely knit tannin backbone.

Winemaking

The fruit from Sable Mountain blocks 17 and 18 were harvested on September 15, 2014. Grape clusters hand-sorted and 100% de-stemmed, with 60% whole berries gravity-fed into small open top fermenters. Manually punched down 2-3 times/day. Cold-soaked for 6-7 days and fermented for a total of 14-16 days on skins. Pressed at or just before dryness.
