Pinot Noir 2014

North Block Five

The deep ruby red color entices you to inhale the aromas of toffee and caramel. Subtle earthiness melds into flavors of raspberry and chocolate with velvety tannins on the finish.

Vineyard Notes
The growing degree days for the season were in line with the long-term average of a typical vintage in the Finger Lakes.  A harsh winter hung on into April. We were spared bud damage directly due to our vineyard location. It was a cool spring, thus holding bud break back until early May.  The summer had some warm stretches but was mostly cool with lower humidity than in recent summers.  July was wetter than normal but most importantly, August thru October saw below average rainfall with many dry, sunny days. The lower disease pressure throughout harvest allowed the grapes time to catch up and finish maturing before the first frost.
Winemaker Notes
Bin fermented punch-down, 10% whole bunch, hand picked. RA17 yeast, aged 9 months in neutral French oak barrels. Rough filtered only, no fining.
Food Pairing Notes
Perfectly complimentary with food. Try grilled salmon, duck or mild and creamy cheeses like Brie, Cheddar, Havarti.
