Vine Hill

2018 Pinot Noir

The first thing you notice about our Vine Hill Pinot Noir is its beautiful, reddish-purple color. This vintage offers aromas of sweet red cherries, dark chocolate and baking spices mingled with hints of cedar wood, sweet vanilla and aromatic juniper spice. This is a medium to full-bodied Pinot Noir that is well-structured with firm, polished tannins. The flavors in this wine offer an expanse of savory tension and complexity that round out to lively fresh acidity with a juicy lingering finish. While this wine is drinking beautifully now, it will continue to benefit from another 2-4 years of bottle age.

About this Wine

Vine Hill

Grapes were picked by hand early each morning into small bins and hand-sorted before a gentle destemming. During the four-day cold soak and the eight-to-twelve-day fermentation, the wine was punched down by hand in small, open-top fermenters. Once ready, the wine was gently pressed using a basket press and gravity-racked into barrels. The aging process for our Pinot Noir utilizes a regimen of one-third each new, once-used, and twice-used French oak. After aging in barrel for fourteen months, the final blend was assembled for bottling on Nov 19, 2019 and allowed to evolve in bottle for an additional six months.
