2016 Banshee Barlow Lane Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
This is a very delicate Pinot Noir. Its markings are more like a fine pointed pen than a thick marker; capable of making a highly detailed sketch with finely fitted and harmonious contours. A warmly scented nose of potpourri and freshly crushed red berries. In the mouth you will find electric flavors of cranberry, strawberry, anise seed and pomegranate.
The grapes were hand sorted and completely destemmed. They were punched down by hand 1-3 times per day during fermentation. The grapes fermented using ambient yeast and were pressed at dryness. Only 4 barrels were made.
