Cherry Pie Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir 2012
Save $30.00 (46%)
2012 was an almost perfect year for Pinot Noir, with only a few minor heat spikes and a long dry fall. The fruit came in absolutely beautiful. We carefully choose the blocks to ferment in micro-lots to isolate the individual flavors and aromas. This wine was mainly fermented in 500 liter French Oak Puncheons with hand punch downs. A portion was aged in stainless and the balance (majority) was aged in the same puncheons the wine was fermented in that very year. The wine was never racked or filtered, and rested on gross lees the entire aging period.
