19 House Mountain Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir
We have been chasing the holy “Pinot” grail for many years now. Pinot’s homeland of Burgundy, France is cooler than many of our growing regions so we have sought out cool microclimates to grow this fickle grape in. We have been experimenting for years both in the vineyard and in the winery and feel we have finally nailed it. The ripeness level of the pinot is spot on: it’s not too high leading the alcohol to dominate and seem hot, but not too low and lacking on body. The “pinosity” is all there with wonderful Bing cherry, rhubarb, orange peel, bramble and a light earthy spice. And, of course, the texture is soft and silky. Whabamn!
