2014 Four Winds Pinot Noir

No. of cases made: 100
Well, we couldn’t let Four Winds Chardonnay have ALL the fun! After receiving two exceptional vintages of the Chardonnay from this vineyard we jumped at the opportunity to make wine from the Four Winds Pommard clone pinot noir in 2012. As it is for the Chardonnay, this 24 year old high elevation vineyard is ideal for fresh, acid driven and austere Pinot Noir.
Against its opulent counterpart, La Colina, the 2014 Four Winds Pinot Noir tames the vintage and delivers a graceful and truly elegant Pinot Noir. With all the complexity gained from the generous stem inclusion this wine manages exquisite balance and radiates energy. Lavender and herb highlight the nose while dark cherry and spice integrate with the smooth tannins on the palate. Terrific middle texture and exceptional length define the Pommard clone and the 2014 Four Winds capture those traits wonderfully. Drinking nicely now, this wine will also age gracefully and gain in stature for years to come.
