2008 Lea Turner Vineyard Pinot Noir
Planted to the renowned Pommard clone, the south-facing slopes and sandy soils of the Turner vineyard make it an ideal terroir for Pinot Noir. This wine was gently basket pressed and hand bucketed to neutral French oak barrels. Handling it with kid gloves definitely paid off as Jennifer was left with one of the most bright, intensely flavored Pinots she or Joey had ever tasted. This wine is rich and round with a long finish and notes of blackberry, blueberry, and purple plum. The spice is deep and the tannic structure solid though the tannins themselves are appealingly soft and grainy. Drink this wine now or let it develop over the next six to eight years.
