Every year Donnelly Creek is consistently the most structured and black fruit driven of our single vineyard designate Pinot Noirs, and the 2013 is no exception – aromas of black cherry, Mission fig, and boysenberry waft from the glass in abundance. Hints of toast and vanilla from the new French oak are also apparent. In the mouth, the wine is richly flavored with more black cherry, cocoa, pomegranate, cedar and toast.  The robust tannins support the palate and will allow the wine to age gracefully for at least a decade.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This wine is made of a blend of Pommard and Stang clones from two different blocks at Donnelly Creek Vineyard, located just outside the town of Boonville in the Anderson Valley Appellation.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested September 16 and October 9 at an average of 24.8° Brix. It then went through a seven day cold soak at 50°F, a nine day uninoculated primary fermentation peaking between 90 and 94°F, and a seven to twenty day extended maceration. The wine was aged fifteen months in 60 gallon French oak barrels, 66% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Damy, Rousseau, and François Frères.
