2014 Elaine's Vineyard Pinot Noir

 Limited production Pinot Noir.  Dark cherries, tea leaves and tobacco on the nose, plums and earthiness on the palate, firm tannins.  
This wine tempts the senses with alluring aromas of dark cherries, tea leaves, and tobacco followed by plums, tart cherries and earthiness on the palate. The finish has a solid structure, with firm tannins that linger on the palate.
Elaine's Vineyard
Elaine’s Vineyard is a gently sloping vineyard on the east side of Seneca Lake in an area known as the “Banana Belt” in the Finger Lakes AVA. Vineyard Manager John Santos is well known in the region as an innovator who has a deep understanding of the vines and vineyards he manages. He employs a balanced vine strategy to ensure appropriate yields, curtail excessive vigor, and deliver Pinot Noir grapes with intense avors and optimum ripeness.
Grapes were hand picked into small 30 lb baskets then gently hand-sorted to select only the best possible fruit. The grapes were then fermented in one ton bins, where they were punched down by hand twice per day. Fermentation lasted for 13 days, then grapes were gently basket-pressed then aged in French Oak barrels for nearly 12 months. 125 Cases Produced
Enjoy with porchetta and mushroom risotto, duck confit with roasted butternut squash and brussels sprouts, or goat cheese and arugula stuffed ravioli in brown butter.
