2013 Three Saints Pinot Noir

2013 Three Saints Pinot Noir

VINTAGE
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.

WINEMAKER NOTES
Three Saints pinot Noir is sourced from a few blocks grown specifically for the wine and the balance is made after selection for our flagship Dierberg Pinot Noir. The 2013 is predominately from our Santa Maria Valley vineyard and reflects the generous texture we often see from that site.

TASTING NOTES
Aromas emphasize Pinot Noir’s earthiness and hint at the dominance of Santa Maria Valley in this wine. Dark cherries are also evident. The entry is broad and round displaying the ripe cherry qualities. The texture is smooth and very pleasing in a forward manner.
