2017 Old Quarry Vineyard Estate Reserve Pinot Noir

Old Quarry vineyard is a limited production Estate reserve selection from our limestone rich vineyard on the East side of Cayuga Lake.  Grapes are sustainably farmed with no herbicide or insecticide.  The vineyard is located at the highest elevation on our Estate on the steepest slopes. Beautiful, rich cherry notes on the nose and palate, followed by a deliciously long finish. 
Fresh red cherries on the nose, followed by dark cherries and currants on the deep, rich palate, and a deliciously long finish. If you wish to consume this wine now, it benefits from several hours of decanting to allow the wine to open up and breathe.
Estate Vineyard
The Old Quarry Vineyard is located at our highest elevation on the Estate, and features Cazenovia silt loam soils on our steepest slopes. The vines and soil overlay the Onondaga limestone bedrock that provides the plants with optimal nutrients and allows the Pinot Noir to flourish. The vineyard is farmed sustainably, forgoing the use of herbicides or insecticides. This land had a small abandoned quarry that was filled in prior to planting our vines, and the vineyard is named in honor of this quarry and the many nearby quarries.
The grapes were hand picked, then optically sorted to select only the best fruit. The wine was 20% whole cluster fermented and aged in French Oak for a year.
