2013 Hawley Estines Vyd Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

sku: 0348F


2013 Hawley Estines Vyd Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley. Three acres of certified organic vines along Olivet Road in the heart of Russian River Valley. We press out each lot as it reaches dryness, in a small basket press to ensure gentle pressing and avoid extracting tannin. The pressed wine goes into 50% new French oak barrels for 18 months. This wine tastes great now, but we know from experience that it always tastes its best five years from the vintage. Now it is showing notes of cranberry and black cherry with warm hints of coffee, tobacco and clove. A deeper, richer Pinot Noir due to the Dijon clones grown on the small vineyard.
