2018 Deep Sea Pinot Noir
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 (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.
