We have picked all of our Pinot noir and the lots are fermenting now. The grapes taste delicious and the numbers (24-25 Brix and 6-7 TAs) are excellent. Given how ripe they are, we should see lots of color from the skins. We just got some other wonderful news about a previous vintage.
The editor of Snooth.com, Gregory Dal Piaz, has just posted his top 15 Pinot noirs, listing our '09 Estate as #2 with 92pts.
He is also running a reader poll as well called the "People's Voice Wine Awards." Two of our wines have made it to the final round and the deadline for voting is quickly approaching (Oct. 22). Please vote by following the links below.
