2014 Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir

from 25.20

The bountiful harvest of 2014, bolstered by a warm growing season, created many terrific winemaking opportunities, including this drop-dead delicious Pinot noir that can grace your Wednesday night table for less than 30 bucks.  Made from 100% "de-classified" estate fruit (ie barrels that were "left over" after we created our Belle Pente Vineyard and Estate Reserve blends), this fresh, friendly, fruit-forward wine is a delight to drink today, but could certainly be cellared for several years as well.

All 8 of our Pinot noir blocks contributed to this blend, with roughly half of the fruit coming from sections planted in 1999 to the Dijon 114 and 115 selections.  Another quarter is comprised of fruit from our prized Pommard block (planted in 1998), and the balance includes small percentages of Wadensvil, Dijon 113, and 777.  This clonal diversity provides a complexity that is rare in such an inexpensive bottling.

This cuvee delivers a great expression of both the vintage and the appellation.  Wines from the warm 2014 growing season tend to be soft and supple, but balanced with adequate levels of acid and tannin.  So they are lush and rich on the plate, but also crisp and clean.  Flavors and aroma of dark berries are complimented with violet and anise notes.  Fewer than 15% of the barrels used were new, and over half were at least 4 years old, so the time and place can shine, unencumbered by barrel influence.

Enjoy this wine today with hearty week-night fare!
