2020 Noble Oble
This gorgeous Pinot Noir has the personality of pomegranate, raspberry, & aromas of redwood duft & cedar. There is no shortage of structure with driving acidity and firm tannin. I would put this wine alongside any premier cru Burgundy. Pork & Pinot is a classic pairing, and the bracing acidity will cut the fat of a pig roast or salamis beautifully!
1/3 of the fruit had some minor organic blemishes and was direct-pressed, 1/3 of the good fruit was destemmed, and the last 1/3 of perfect fruit was left whole-cluster. Attentive pump-overs were initially used to get a healthy native ferment, and gentle cap wettings were applied in the later stages of fermentation. Gently pressed and sent sur lie to 1 puncheon and 1 barrel. After ten months, the wine was racked once and then bottled. Unfined, unfiltered, and no added SO2 at any point. Cellared for an additional nine months in bottle before release in spring 2022.
