Classic Bing Cherry on the nose with clove and lovely integrated vanilla notes on the finish from barrel aging, this Pinot Noir is a rich juicy example of what the variety can produce.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Classic Bing Cherry on the nose with clove and lovely integrated vanilla notes on the finish from barrel aging, this Pinot Noir is a rich juicy example of what the variety can produce.
Vineyard Notes
North Unity has changed a bit over the years. It consists of mostly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The fruit originally went to still wines, then to bubbly, now back into still products. It trends a few days ahead in ripening most vintages, which made the decision easy this year. #3 has a small one acre Pinot Noir block that was replanted in 2015. Its taken a while to get up to consistency, but it's finally producing fruit that can go into red wine production.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit for this wine fermented in stainless steel tanks for 3 weeks before being pressed off. Pinot Noir is a fickle beast that is difficult to yield expression from. We have found the best approach is to let it be delicate and light, and not try to force it to be something its not.
Food Pairing Notes
Given its higher acidity and low tannins, Pinot Noir is a very versatile wine when it comes to pairing it with food. It pairs particularly well with duck, chicken, pork and mushrooms.
Vintage Notes
2020
A mix of 2 different vineyards.  This Pinot Noir is a mix of clones 115 (85%) and 777 (15%).  This wine spent 14 months in French Oak - 15% new, 30% second use, and 50% third use barrels.  Pinot Noir juice spent 2 weeks on skins to extract color and went through 2 different fermentations.
