Ferrington Vineyard Pinot Noir’s distinct red-fruit flavor profile of ripe raspberry, alpine strawberries, and kirsch dominate the aromatics of this lovely wine. Notes of rosehips, red apple, and cinnamon add layers of complexity. Bright and juicy in the mouth, this wine is defined by its mouth-watering acidity and clean finish. Flavors of brambleberries, red currant, and cranberry linger in the mouth. This food friendly Pinot Noir will continue to develop and drink beautifully for at least 10 years.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The vaunted Ferrington Vineyard is located just outside the town of Boonville, an area of Anderson Valley that is more protected from the maritime breeze, giving the wine from Ferrington a classically fruit driven and opulent Pinot Noir character. This wine is made of a blend of Pommard, Wädenswil, and the Dijon clones 115 and 777.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested on August 18th at an average of 24.4° Brix. It then went through a five-day cold soak at 50°F, a nine day uninoculated primary fermentation peaking at 92°F, and a six-day extended maceration. The wine was aged fifteen months in 60-gallon French oak barrels, 40% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Rousseau, François Frères and Quintessence.
