2013 Friedeman, Lancel Creek, Pinot Noir
Rich dark bramble fruit offset by a subtle minerality. A powerful but balanced Pinot to enjoy now through 2020.
Sourced from Lancel Creek Vineyard: a single, ultra-premium vineyard, on the very Western edge of the Russian River Valley.
Harvested at an average 25.2 brix. Cold soaked five days, with native and inoculate fermentation, and no rackings prior to bottling. Aged for 12 months in 50% new Francois Freres and Sirugue barrels. Clones: Pommard and 777
