2018 Legacy Nancy's Pinot Noir 1.5L
Named after Bill Stoller’s sister, this wine, made primarily from Pommard, is bold. Aromatics of sandalwood, sun ripened red fruits, and fresh cut roses with hints of baking spice. The palate is rich and structured, due in part to 35% whole cluster fermentation, with flavors of ripe red cherry, minerality, and black tea that lead to a long finish.
On average, the 2018 vintage was a warmer and drier growing season. The vintage kicked off with an early bud break. June saw a cool, wet weather period during bloom put the vintage back on track for a traditional September harvest. The most notable climatic feature to the 2018 vintage, was our extended summer harvest weather that continued into early November. This allowed us to pick based on ripe flavors and near-perfect natural acidity
