2014 Folktale Pinot Noir


In the glass, the color is deep garnet with flashes of violet. Aromas of plum, dried cherries, and blackberry mingle with tea leaves, black pepper, and jasmine. These notes follow onto the palate. The dark, lively fruit flavors of cherry, raspberry, blackberry, and plum are the stars, but the stage is what makes the impression – a rich backdrop of earth, minerals, floral notes, spice, and a hint of eucalyptus. There is nice acid structure but the overall texture is big, bold, and smooth. The big size of this wine will be ideal for bolder flavors of red meat, sauces, and grilled vegetables, but also beautiful on its own.

The vineyards are sustainably farmed and we hand-pick our grapes at an average of 25.1 brix in half ton bins to ensure the best quality wines. The 2014 harvest started earlier than the previous vintages in recent memory, but the growing season was not shortened. The warm winter and spring prompted an early bud break, allowing the fruit plenty of time to mature and develop. These ideal conditions resulted in fruit that was complex and well balanced. Harvest took place in early September. The wine was fermented in tank then aged in 10% New French Oak for 10 months before bottling.
