2015 Nysa Vineyard Pinot Noir
For additional printable notes, click here!
The 2015 NYSA aroma is sweet and rich, with concentrated dark berries-blackberries, framed by intense floral notes of (darker) roses and violets. The flavors are rich, juicy, bold, and bright, with a concentrated fruit core, rich with bright dark berries, red and dark cherries, velvety rich tannins and intense spiciness. The texture is semi-sweet with rich, refined concentrated tannins, filling the mouth and bringing power and strength to the wine. The texture is harmonious, rich and lasting, a yummy mouthful of flavors. The finish is very long and intense with concentrated fruit flavors, earthiness and tannins spiciness. This wine can be enjoyed now with or without decanting and will benefit from a few years of cellaring.
Nysa Vineyard is located in the Dundee Hills AVA at 600 feet elevation, neighboring Domaine Drouhin Oregon. Torii Mor gets Pommard, planted on their own roots in 1990.
Harvested September 20, fermented in small fermenters for 18 days. The wine was aged in French oak, 20% new, 20% one year old and the rest neutral. The barrels were racked in April after Malo-Lactic fermentation, then again in August when the blend was put together before returning to barrels until bottling for a total of 23 months. This blend is made of 100% Pommard clone.
