WindVane Reserve Pinot Noir is the ultimate selection. We pre-select vineyard blocks that are most devigorated and exposed to the intense Carneros winds, as they will give us the most intensity of flavors. Individual vineyard lots are destemmed, partially crushed and cold- soaked for 2 days to extract color and fruit flavors in our small open tanks. After fermentation, the wines are aged in French oak barrels for 9 months. A handful of barrels are selected for the final blend, those that truly express the intensity of flavors that WindVane embodies.

The aroma of this Pinot Noir opens with bold spice, earth, black cherry, and blackberry. On the palate are ripe black fruit characteristics of black cherry and blackberry, as well as a spicy, earthy forest floor, and cedar.

"Pale to med ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir WindVane Reserve has aromas of red cherries, raspberries and garrigue with wafts of wild thyme and lavender. The medium to full-bodied palate offers lovely purity with a great core of fruit and a soft, slippery texture, finishing with very good persistence." - Robert Parker
