Three Feathers Reserve 667 Pinot Noir 2018

$57.14$600.00

The Best of the Best, three premium barrels of 2018 Pinot Noir Clone 667 from Three Feathers Block 1 were aged for 18 months in neutral French oak. The longer time in the barrel intensified the flavors and colors. Peppery, with deep cherry and blackberry flavors, this limited edition Pinot Noir sets a new standard of excellence.

The quality of the fine wind-blown Laurelwood soil creates a wine of lush complexity; ruby red and slightly spicy. We can definitely taste the black raspberries that were grown for many years at Three Feathers and the color is a deep garnet red. The wine is smooth and well balanced with a slight acidity at the finish.

Vineyard Notes
Bud break was in early April this year, a full 4 weeks before previous years. The exceptional dryness pushed the sugars higher and flavors intensified.  Selection for the Reserve 667 was made by tasting each barrel separately.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand-harvested, sorted and pressed. The wine was kept in the vat for 21 days then barreled in neutral French oak for 18 months and bottled in the spring of 2020.
