2014 La Cruz Pinot Noir
La Cruz Vineyard
Dark cherry and dried cranberry give way to a dense, mouthwatering minerality and fruit driven mid-palate with a long-lasting finish of elegant tannin.
The core of La Cruz Pinot Noir comes from the Pommard clone, which creates a wine with a dense and elegant backbone. Clones 667 & 777 are added for bright fruit and mouth-watering acidity. Small percentages of other clones provide delicacy and spice bringing all the varietal components together seamlessly.
All our Pinot Noir fermentations use native yeast which help us capture a true sense of place.The wine was racked once at bottling after 10 months in barrel.
Our winemaking practices strive to gently guide our wines through our gravity feed cellar with minimal intervention.
