2013 Davis Estates Pinot Noir

2013 Davis Estates Pinot Noir

Vineyard: Truchard Vineyard, Carneros

Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir

Vintage: Excellent and early is how the 2013 growing season is considered. A warm and dry spring preceded early bud break and grapes ripened steadily under optimal conditions with only one heat spike in early July. Harvest was the earliest in recent history, enabling winemakers to make very precise picking decisions, insuring ideal ripeness and hang time.

Winemaker’s Notes: A bright nose with hints of slight cherry sweetness, a hallmark of great Pinot Noir, is the precursor for a sophisticated palate with touches of anise, nutmeg and allspice. This is an outstanding Pinot Noir, with a rich and lively mouthfeel.
