2014 Abbey Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir

45.00

In 2014 Abbey Ridge produced an extraordinary wine! Harvested on October 4th under beautiful skies, we received fruit with ripe, silky tannins, terrific acidity and huge, effusive fruit flavors. On the nose there is the signature of Abbey Ridge Vineyard: high tone crushed-raspberry, bright red current fruit with a layering of a floral lavender/lilac, and an undercurrent of earth. On the palate the wine continues to show massive fruit expression for a wine as elegant and ageworthy as this one.  Raspberries and sweet-exotic spice are complemented by a subtle hint of vanilla and coffee from the oak.  The balance and completeness of this wine is expressed from the very first sip through to the last drop.  A wine truly distinguished by it’s terroir.  After eighteen days in the fermentor, the must was pressed, and racked directly to barrel. Of the ten barrels, two were new (20% new oak) and the remainder was a blend of one-year-old and neutral wood.  After an indigenous malo-lactic, the wine was lightly sulfured and racked to the bottling line after 12 months in barrel, without fining or filtration.  Total production was 251 cases & four cases of magnums.
