Pinot Noir, Heron '18, Oakville, California$28.00
VINEYARDS: Monterey, Paso Robles, Russian River
WINEMAKERS COMMENTS: We use several different clones, and being believers in minimal manipulation regarding the environment, have eliminated fertilizers and soil amendments. We do not add any acid in the cellar. Deep garnet in color, the nose of this wine is beautifully perfumed, suggesting violets, star anise, raspberry coulis, and earthy mineral notes. The palate exhibits juicy black cherry and berry flavors. The finish is long and elegant, offering hints of exotic spice. Wadenswill is a clone which lends flavors of mouthwatering sour cherry and crushed strawberries, while Pommard 4 provides earthiness. The wine has soft tannins from the cool climate selection and finishes with balanced acidity, light bodied tannins and a soft, silky finish. We blend grapes from several appellations. Complexity is achieved with blending AVA’s, not varietals.
