"One of the most distinctive wines in the range, the 2014 Pinot Noir Las Hermanas Vineyard is captivating. Fresh, nuanced and super-expressive, it hits all the right notes. Intense, perfumed aromatics, bright fruit and fine, chiseled tannins give the wine its super-distinctive personality. There is much to like here."

FERMENTATION: Fruit is hand-picked at optimal ripeness and gently sorted at the winery. The fruit is then gently transported to two ton stainless steel fermenters. A saignee is pulled after a day or two help concentrate the flavors and color. Over the next 10-12 days, native yeast fermentation takes place (roughly 40% whole cluster).
From there, the fermenter is emptied into a small stainless steel basket press, which then gently and methodically presses the wine for a continuous 6-8 hour cycle.

AGING: The wine then goes into French oak barrels (25% is new). Secondary fermentation occurs during the following Spring/Summer. The finished wine is neither fined nor filtered before being bottled via gravity.
