Brassfield Pinot Noir High Serenity Ranch Vineyard 2011

Brassfield Pinot Noir High Serenity Ranch Vineyard 2011

Sku: 057566

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Apr 2013)
The Brassfield wines stand out for their exceptional value. The 2011 Pinot Noir is about as good a Pinot as readers will find for the money. Expressive and layered, the 2011 stands out for its balance and symmetry. Nothing is out of place in this delineated, feminine Pinot Noir. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and spices inform the juicy, vibrant finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.

Wine maker notes
Fruit for the Pinot Noir was grown from three estate vineyard blocks, planted to a mix of Dijon (115, 667, 777, 828) and Pommard (UCD 4) clones. The location of each of these blocks was chosen because they are the coldest sites on the High Serenity Ranch vineyard. The low gap in the ridge above the vineyard allows cooled lake air from Clear Lake to spill into High Valley producing Pinot Noir with more intense varietal character, better color extraction and excellent acid retention.
