The grapes were handpicked off both our Lake Country and Vernon vineyard site on November 2 and 3. After whole berry fermented in stainless tanks, the 2014 Pinot Noir was then aged 9 months in100% French oak, 20% new oak barrels.
Lovely ripe cherry aromas are sprinkled with strawberry, violets and coffee. The satin palate is well balanced with dark spice on the finish. After whole berry fermentation the wine was aged 9 months in a combination of French and American Oak. The Result is a wine with a gorgeous texture that will please the Pinot Noir enthusiast. Drink now through 2018.
