2013 Jenner Pinot Noir
The cool climate of the Sonoma Coast appellation influences the grapes harvested for the Jenner Pinot Noir by
producing bright aromas of red currants, Boysenberry, wet stone and subtle nuances of violet and baking spices.
This deeply hued wine has a beautiful balance between bright acidity and elegant tannins. Notes of Pomegranate
give way to bright flavors of Bing Cherry, followed by a savory edge and slight spiciness. Look for a soft, lingering
earthy finish with hints of plum.
The fruit was de-stemmed only so that whole berries were transferred to open top fermenters, to help capture
bright fruit aromas and flavors. After 4-8 days of a cold soak, the tanks were warmed which allowed the juice to
ferment naturally. The tanks were punched down 2-3 times per day for 10 days allowing skin contact for color
and flavor extraction. The wine was then drained off the skins and placed in 30% new French oak barrels.
