Delicious Pinot Noir. The 2013 Dierberg Vineyard is juicy, full, fresh, and structured. The aromatic profile is a myriad of dark fruits layered with earthy tones and sweet spices like clove. The mid palate has terrific depth and the finish enough structure to carry a long finish.
VIP 10-1 Dierberg Pinot Noir
As a producer all you can ask from Mother Nature is to avoid extremes and for enough time to get everything accomplished how you want, but more importantly, when you want. 2013 was exactly that. While a warm, dry Spring advanced the season placing the ripening times in August and September instead of September and October, we avoided the dramatic heat spells that often accompany such advanced timing. This allowed all grapes to be harvested at a time that was correct for that variety, ranch and specific block. The vintage is emerging as one with tremendous purity and freshness.
