2014 BIEZE VINEYARD PINOT NOIR -Last call 3 bottle limit - $65

We are fortunate at Bieze Vineyard to work with the Calera clone of pinot noir, which is more common to California. Calera has tiny berries, relatively thicker skins, and less juice with a very loose cluster set, allowing air flow to keep disease pressure and rot at bay. We also source Pommard from Bieze, which is a late ripening heritage clone of pinot noir. The 2014 Bieze Vineyard Pinot Noir is composed of two-thirds Calera, contributing color intensity and round tannins, while the remaining one-third is the classic Pommard clone, giving lift and freshness to the wine.

In the winery, the fruit was destemmed, cold soaked for five days, then slowly warmed to build its yeast culture. Fermentation temperatures peaked around 85 degrees Fahrenheit, ensuring a long, steady fermentation over the course of 21-23 days. The wine was fermented dry, racked off lees, and barreled clean to French oak. The wine stayed in barrel until racking for bottling in late August of 2013.
