Product Description

The 2014 Kukeri Pinot Noir is coming from a single vineyard located in Healdsburg on Eastside Road in the heart of the Russian River Valley. The wine is produced from clone 115 and 777 also known as one of the Dijon clones. It is characterized by small berries, which results more intense and rich Pinot Noir with good tannin structure suitable for aging. Our 2014 Russian River Pinot Noir is silky in texture and complex in flavor, with black cherry, rose petal and raspberry fusing perfectly with an exotic undertone of licorice and vanilla oak. In the glass, bright red hues, darker to the edge, medium weight on the palate balanced with good acidity. Long and luscious finish. The grapes were handpicked and de-stemmed into small fermentation bins and allowed to cold soak for 3 days to help stabilize the color and enhance flavors. It was fermented for 14 days and punched down 3 times a day to increase extraction of color and phenolic compounds. Gently pressed and aged for 12 months into 100% French oak barrels (30% new oak). Only 6 barrels produced (144 cases). Enjoy with family and friends. Cheers!
