Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir has a rich, sweet, inviting fruity aroma of ripe dark berries, a note of dark olive, lavender and dry cooking herbs. The flavors are forward, rich and sweet displaying ripe, dark cherries and a complex mixture of blue and mostly dark berries. The texture is round, fat, sweet and very rich, with silky-sweet tannins. The finish is long with a rich complexity of darker, sweet, ripe fruit, chocolate notes and a touch of spiciness.
Vineyard Notes
This Yamhill-Carlton bottling comes from Winkler Vineyard on top of Mount Richmond in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The vineyard sits between 650 and 700 feet elevation with basaltic soils, a mix of Jory, Bellpine and Ritner. Winkler Vineyard is 11.81 acres of Pinot Noir clones Dijon 115 and 777 and 3.31 acres of Pinot Blanc planted from 1997 to 2003.
Production Notes
Harvested on September 21 and 22, the fruit was handpicked, sorted, destemmed, then fermented without whole clusters, in small 1.5 ton bins for 13 to 25 days before pressing. This blend is 84% Dijon 115 and 16% Dijon 777. The wine aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 16% new oak and the rest neutral. . The barrels were racked in March, after Malo-Lactic fermentation then again in August when the blend was put together before returning to neutral barrels until bottling.
