"Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Temblor Vineyard is youthfully reticent at this early stage, with delicate suggestions of dusty earth, cardamom and dried thyme over a core of Bing cherries, pomegranate and cranberries with a waft of tree bark. Medium-bodied, the palate is laden with earthy/savory flavor layers with a structure of chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with some Indian spice notes coming through." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
About the Vintage
After three years of plentiful harvests, the 2015 vintage brought low, but outstanding yields. A mild spring and summer with almost no rain allowed the fruit to ripen at a very steady and deliberate pace, and picking began a few days earlier than 2014. The drier-than-normal conditions and abundant sunshine contributed to the smaller berry size and low yields, resulting in wines with excellent concentration, color and flavor.
