2017 The Four Graces Foley Family Vineyard Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills
Our 2017 Foley Family Estate Pinot Noir is synonymous with elegance and finesse. Aromatics of wild forest strawberry and dried rose petal are accented by notes of coffee bean and baking spices. The palate draws you in with flavors of rich dark red plum and hints of earth and sage. Rich and rounded in structure with soft, velvety tannins and acidity that leads to a long and persistent finish.
100% Pinot Noir
September 25th –October 16th 2017
9 months in 30% French oak
The 2017 vintage started off with a colder than average winter, with multiple snow storms. Spring was about average and bud break started in April. The summer season was beautiful with warm days and cool nights. Temperatures remained moderate throughout the summer months with only a few short heat waves. One of the most notable events of the summer was the solar eclipse which took place on August 21st. Our vineyard fell in the 95% totality zone. During the harvest, from September 25th –October 16th 2017, the conditions were mostly dry which allowed for great picking conditions.
All fruit for this wine was sourced from our Foley Family Estate Vineyard. These blocks are planted with Clones 777. 115 and Wadensville.
