2014 La Linea Pinot Noir
La Linea is our premier, barrel-select label. Its elegant, refined, and aromatically complex nature creates a distinct and unique Pinot Noir. This inaugural vintage was produced using free run juice and aged 10 months in French oak. We used mostly neutral oak barrels, adding 30% new to give the wine extra structure. Our Head of Wine Jared Etzel repeatedly tested the wine, eventually selecting 6 barrels most representative of the cellar to carry our flagship label. The wine was bottled in September 2015. This bottling offers a subtle and delicate floral nose of violet and a hint of cranberry. In the mouth, the wine develops into licorice and spice, and every sip offers more complex layers of enticing flavors. Drink now through 2028.
