2014 Mills vineyard Pinot Noir possesses a captivating bouquet of red currant, tart  cherry,  mineral,  white  pepper  and  blueberry.  Beautiful  flavors  of  violets, rose  petals  and  boysenberry  are  wrapped  around  an  intense,  concentrated core  of  fine-grained  tannins  with  hints  of  sweet  oak.  Moderate  viscosity  and great depth continue into a long, juicy, mouthwatering finish.

Wine Notes

Little rainfall in 2014 led us into our third year of a drought. Warm spring temperatures and brilliant sunshine through the summer made for a fantastic growing season, but yields were severely affected by the lack of rainwater. This made
for a fast, furious and early harvest. We picked the Mills vineyard in three passes from September 3rd to the 18th. Each lot was pressed 14 days after harvest, racked by gravity to French oak barrels, then aged without racking in those barrels, 30% new, for seventeen months. The lots were then combined and the resultant wine was bottled without filtration, as always.
