This 2014 vintage of Notorious Pinot Noir is one of our best yet, thanks to amazing weather of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma, California during the growing season.

The grapes come from four vineyard sites in the Russian River Valley near the town of Sebastopol: Bianchi Vineyard, Giuseppe Vineyard, Jasper Vineyard, and Starscape Vineyard. The fruit was hand-harvested and sorted by cluster to guarantee that only premium grapes made it into the barrels. Then, the wine was allowed to soak on the skins until the natural fermentation began, which normally takes anywhere from four to ten days. 

Each step in the winemaking process was natural, without any of the usual additions that commercial wineries use, such as acid, nitrogen, and nutrients, which affect the natural flavors and taste. 10% of the barrels were new oak and the rest were one or two years old. The wine was aged in these barrels for 10 months before it was bottled without any fining or filtration. 

Minimal intervention in the winemaking process yielded a wine that exhibits delicate flavors and aromas. Pomegranate, strawberry jam, and black cherry notes lead on the nose and palate with subtle hints of earth. As the wine lingers on the tongue, baking spices round out its persistently long, heady finish. 

Drink now or cellar with and enjoy through 2019. We suggest paring this wine with Ian's Grilled Chipotle Stuffed Tenderloin recipe

In a word, lovely! Lovely red and dark fruit aromas, smooth mouth feel and a very satisfying finish. My current "go to " Pinot Noir.
