2012 Oracle Vineyard Pinot Noir


2012 Oracle Vineyard Pinot Noir


The 2012 blend includes 12% 35-year-old Pommard clone Pinot Noir, planted on its own roots in 1977. The remaining 66% is dominated by the Dijon 777 clone but has small percentages of five other Dijon clones.  With our 2001 planting (densly planted 777&115 on RG) in full production, coupled with the strong return of the old vine block, Oracle is now firmly entrenched in our winery.  All lots were fermented with indigenous yeast in open-top 1,500-liter fermentors. This thirty-four barrel lot was aged in six new barrels, six one year old, with the balance in neutral wood.  The wine displays the classic pure berry fruits (Marionberry, black current and red raspberry) and exceptional balance that the 2012 vintage produced from Oralce. After an indigenous malo-lactic fermentation, it was racked with inert gas in the spring of 2013, and was bottled unfined and unfiltered in September of 2013 after eleven months in oak.
