Witness Tree “Vintage Select” Pinot Noir
The term Vintage Select denotes our “reserve” tier Pinot Noir. Half from traditional sites in the Upper Vineyard and half from the Lower Vineyard, this Pinot Noir represents our premier achievements in both grape-growing and winemaking and are fermented separately in the same time-honored manner as the Estate Pinot Noir and aged in all new French oak barrels for ten months. Upon opening one is greeted with wonderfully fresh aromas of dried herbs, purple flowers, forest floor, perfume and spice; with underlying notes of black fruits. In the mouth the wine shows ample mouthfeel that continues to broaden with air. Stewed cherries, strawberries and currants round-out a quite full palate with subtle nuances of more dried herbs, aged leather and spice box. Given its depth, concentration, complexity and structure, this wine will be tempting to drink in its youth, but will continue to develop in the bottle and provide rewarding drinking for many years to come. If enjoyed in its youth decanting is recommended; though one will be seriously pleased with 1-2 years of continued cellaring.
