“This is a powerful Pinot Noir that demonstrates excellent depth along with a rich, velvety texture that is balanced by a wonderful touch of acidity. The finish is silky and persistent with wild berries and spices attacking your palate. An excellent debut for David Ramey's first Pinot Noir.”
- International Wine Report
The cuvaison (time on skins) extends for a full three weeks, resulting in a more structured Pinot than many current California examples. This is a Pinot that will reward cellaring. Aging on fine lees, with malolactic in barrel, incorporates the oak, making the 15 months spent in one-year-old barrels (previously used for Chardonnay) barely noticeable. As with all of our wines, the Pinot Noir undergoes native yeast and malolactic fermentations.
