The nose of this dark ruby colored 2006 vintage is what we look forward to in a Pinot Noir; a mélange of black cherry, dark raspberry and strawberry


Prominent minerality, and subtle floral notes of violets intermingling with flavors of cherry pits. The oak shows delicately as it balances the spicy notes of nutmeg, pepper, cedar, camphor and roasted espresso with fruit of black fruit and pomegranate.


Hand-harvested, meticulously hand-sorted before and after de-stemming on our state-of-the-art sorting tables, and then cold-soaked for 6 days at 40°F. The fermentation of the pure berries took place for 12 days in one of our specially designed and perfectly temperature controlled stainless steel fermenter, with punch-down twice a day based on tasting. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine was barreled in 100 % new French oak barrels. We had a weekly stirring regime during 2 months and the Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels.


We did not fine nor filter the wine prior to bottling in order to keep its purity and full expression.


20 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Topping and racking the wine and regular tastings has been our duty until the bottling in May 2008.
