2013 Stanly Ranch Carneros Pinot Noir

2013 Stanly Ranch Carneros Pinot Noir

Little half bottles (yes 375ml) of our Carneros classic. The nose has hints of cherry cola, strawberry preserves, and wild berry compote. The palate is so smooth and silky with the jam packed fruit notes enveloped in bright acid and supple tannins.

Cart Total:  $0.00

We had a relatively dry winter once again this year. You surely have heard the word drought numerous times already. The little rain in the Spring was not really enough to get excited about but it was better than nothing. Set was overall exceptional for our blocks of fruit and Summer was moderate with miniscule spells of rain and no major heat spikes.
It was the middle of the night as usual on Sept 5th and we were under the lights of the trucks picking 114, 777, and a little Pommard clone. When the grapes arrived at the winery I kept each clone separate. After destemming they were dumped into open topped bins and left to cold soak. About 6 days later, they were taken outside to start warming the yeasts so the fermentation kicked off naturally as planned. My favorite job came next- 2 weeks of manual punch downs and foot stomping to extract just the right amount of color and tannin. Once the wine went dry, the free run was pumped into separate barrels and all the must went into the press together. The malo-lactic fermentation occurred without inoculation and the wine aged about 11 months before bottling.
