Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2012 Famous Gate Pinot Noir opens with enticing aromas of plum, baked cherry, and cinnamon. The same notes echo on the palate, enriched by layers of late-summer boysenberry, savory leather and earth. With its silky texture and mouthwatering acidity, this wine invites enjoyment now and promises further depth and complexity with added cellaring.
Vineyard Notes
Mother Nature was generous in 2012 and a bountiful crop was harvested after a classic long and cool growing season for which Carneros is famous. Four clonal selections: Swan (54%), Hanzell (16%), Dijon 115 (15%), and Dijon 777 (15%) off our organic estate were gently de-stemmed and cold soaked for five days to extract color and aromatics. Fermentation took place in in small open vats, and the caps punched down three times daily. An exhaustive barrel stave selection and aging program tailored to our winery by fine Burgundy coopers including Remond, Rousseau, and Cadus lend supple tannins and warm spice to the wine. The wine was aged in barrels for 14 months, and the final blend was racked once before bottling without fining or filtration.
