Limited production wine crafted from grapes grown on Cayuga Lake.  Aromas of dark plums and Earl Grey tea on the nose, followed by bing cherries and earthiness on the palate. 100% whole cluster fermented. 
The 2013 Patrician Verona Pinot Noir begins with aromas of dark plums and Earl Grey tea on the nose, followed by bing cherries and earthiness on the palate, and medium firm tannins on the finish.
Patrician Verona Vineyard
This vineyard is located on the west side of Cayuga lake. The vineyard is managed using sustainable viticulture methods and has received a National Conservation Award, and has received a National Conservation Stewardship Award for past and present farming practices.
The grapes were hand picked into small, 30 pound baskets to prevent bruising. On the crush pad, we gently hand-sorted the grapes to ensure that only the best possible fruit was included in the wine. We fermented the whole clusters of grapes in one ton bins, and punched down the caps by hand twice per day. Fermentation lasted for 13 days, then we gently basket-pressed the grapes, and transferred the wine to French Oak barrels for 12 months of aging. The wine was not fined nor filtered.
