Harry Peterson Nedry planted the oldest vines in Ribbon Ridge AVA, Ridgecrest Vineyards. During this supreme vintage we harvested blocks of Pommard and Dijon clones from the historic Wind Ridge block. The Pinot noir was fermented in upright French Oak tanks and we new during fermentation that there was something very special about the wine. 16 month elevage in extra tight grain French oak created a wine of incredible balance and complexity. Aromas of black plum, marion berry, rose, dark chocolate captivate. Generous silken palate, Moyer plum, black cherry, dense fine tannin, gossamer texture finishing long with fresh black currant and tea.
