2008 Pahlmeyer Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

“Medium ruby in color, the profuse nose of the 2008 Pahlmeyer Pinot Noir shows raspberry, red plum, light cedar and damp earth.  Vibrant red fruit leads to a lively, layered palate that lingers on and on.” – Erin Green, Winemaker September 2010

The grape clusters were hand-sorted, and once de-stemmed, the berries were sorted again by hand on the way to tank. After four to five days of pre-fermentation cold maceration in small open-top fermentors, the fruit began 100% native yeast fermentation. Two to three weeks later, the fruit was gently pressed and moved to barrel where it finished primary and secondary fermentations. The wine continued to age in 67% new French oak for fifteen months and it was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
