Witness Tree “Estate” Pinot Noir
Our Estate Pinot Noir is the harmonious union of all of the Pinot Noir sites at Witness Tree Vineyard – ultimately reflecting the blending of the distinctive flavors and textures produced by the varying soil types, vine ages, clonal-selections and sun-exposures from our terrain. The wine was fermented using only native yeast, pressed, allowed to settle, and then transferred to French oak barrels (a third of which were new) where it was aged for ten months. Prior to bottling the wine was gently removed from barrel and bottled without fining or filtration. Because of this, it may throw a small amount of sediment over time – a sure sign of the minimal handling that this wine received.
Deep garnet in color, the Witness Tree Estate Pinot Noir is powerful and yet full of grace with aromas of dark, primary fruits with intense perfume and spice driven qualities. On the palate the wine is round, full and satiny with notes of black cherries, rhubarb, dried herbs and baking spices. The finish is fresh and clean with well-integrated tannins and acid. Though drinking well in its youth, it will definitely reward the patient cellarer. Enjoy this wine with traditional beef and lamb dishes as well as smoked salmon, pork, and cheese.
