2017 Bernau Block Pinot Noir

2017 Bernau Block Pinot Noir

Sourced exclusively from 15 acres of Pinot Noir from the first plantings at the Estate Vineyard, Founder Jim Bernau planted these vines using a Christmas tree planter pulled behind his 33 horsepower tractor. He grafted the French clones 667 and 777 on a portion of the vines when they became available.

On the Nose: Ruby in color, concentrated aromas of bramble fruit, mint, cedar and graphite emerge.

On the Palate: A silky palate featuring jammy notes of blackberry and cherry cobbler accented by dried herbs and minerality flavors. The firm, rustic tannins and lively acidity frame the ample palate and the finish extends far beyond the sip. 

Food Pairings: Cinnamon Rubbed Lamb Lollipops, Braised Short Ribs, Duck Breast with Blackberry Compote, Beef Tenderloin and Bacon-Wrapped Figs.

Peak Drinkability: 2020 - 2028.
