The Pinot Noir grapes for this vintage of Deep Sea Pinot Noir are sourced from an acclaimed Los Alamos Vineyard site. Original cuttings for this vineyard were brought over from Europe 25 years ago. Unlike the rosé version of this delightful wine, the Pinot Noir for the “Diving Helmet” label is fermented on the skins to obtain maximum tannin and pigment (coloration). The ruby red color and good structure of this wine come from the time it spends macerating on the skins. Barrel aged for a short time (roughly 6 months), this wine is delicate enough to drink on it's own, but versatile for food pairing. Classic cherry and strawberry fruit notes are present, with a solid backbone of acidity and pleasant tannin.
This Reserve bottling was created by allowing our favorite barrels of the vintage to age an additional 8 months in predominately new French Oak. The result is a wine that displays an elegant and balanced integration of fruit and spice.
Two distinct grape varietals define the 2017 vintage of the Duel. Merlot offers waves of dark fruit, chocolate, and plum. Petite Verdot delivers black cherry, violet and sage.
