Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Focused aromas of black cherry and bramble berries with hints of allspice and clove lead to rich flavors of dark fruits, mission figs, and a smoky spice from aging in Burgundian French oak barrels.
Vineyard Notes
Formerly named Michael's Vineyard, this newest Castello estate vineyard is located in the sub-AVA of Green Valley, on the southwestern edge of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. Situated only 15 miles from the coast, calm, foggy mornings give way to warm afternoons and cool, breezy nights, providing a perfect climate for growing Pinot Noir. Michael's Vineyard is planted with 12 acres of clones 115, 777, and Pommard 4, which are nourished by the Gold Ridge sandy loam soils of this historic district.
Winemaker Notes
Following the very small 2015 harvest, it was heartening to see the vines recover and bounce back to produce not only extremely high quality fruit but also some bounty in 2016! Harvest was earlier than expected, and we observed optimum flavor and phenolic development progress as we harvested. Across the board, the flavors and acdis were exceptional, and a delicious balance evolved as the harvest proceeded. Acids are firm and pH is slightly lower, so the wines should be well-structured with very good aging potential. - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
An excellent wine to pair with wild mushroom crostini, garlic and fennel pork roast, or lamb stuffed eggplant.
