Pinot Noir - Motifs - Estate Vineyard - Sonoma Mountain - 2014


100% Pinot Noir
Clones: Calera, Beba, Rochioli
Raised 10 months in once-used French oak

New to this year's line-up is our estate grown 'Motifs' bottlings. These wines are crafted to offer a distinct perspective of the vineyard compared to their flagship Estate counterparts.

Our 2014 Motifs Pinot Noir presents a saturated, ruby-purple color radiating from core to rim. With swirling, a nose of bright red pie fruits, cherry bark, bakers chocolate and a tell-tale Pinot Noir loaminess jumps from the glass. On the palate, this site's powerful mountain fruit is on display. Red berries are lifted by notes of pine forest, while an inherent sous-bois brambles across the palate, adding freshness and verve.

The fruit destined for Motifs hails from vineyard blocks that exhibit youthful vigor and produce fruit with magnificent depth of flavor and focus. Farming practices in these particular blocks are exacting and based upon achieving a perfectly balanced vine. Once harvested, the grapes are handled with great delicacy to emphasize purity of fruit and accentuate the wine's inherent charm.
