Pinot Noir
Hallberg Vineyard, 2016

$ 75.00

We would never be able to forgive ourselves if we didn’t set aside some Pinot Noir from this one single vineyard block and bottle it separately. Both complex and ‘sneaky,’ it possesses our favorite qualities of this variety and region. While seductive in the short term, it should age magnificently due to its balance and gently taut, structural core.

Winemaker's Notes

This is one of my all-time favorite Pinot Noir sites. A special, proprietary clone of Pinot Noir was legally imported into the US decades ago and I was fortunate to be able to work with this since 2004. It retains acidity to an astonishing degree and has some fantastic perfumes that Pinot Noir can exhibit at its best. High-toned, floral, sweet fresh beets, slight muskiness. Bright acidity, very mouth-watering with great continuity and clean finish. Antonio Galloni commented “The 2016 Pinot Noir Hallberg Vineyard is stellar. Bright and punchy in its first impression, the 2016 impresses with its fabulous sense of harmony. Raspberry, blood orange, mint, rose petal and anise give the 2016 striking brilliance that complements its chiseled, finely sculpted fruit so well. The 2016 is wiry yet deep, with the first signs of aromatic development just starting to creep in. In a word: terrific. 94 pts.”
