Product Details

The Heart & Hands Pinot Noir was sourced from Elaine's Vyd (Seneca Lake East), Patrician Verona Vyd (Cayuga Lake West) and Nutt Rd Vyd (Seneca Lake West). The grapes are hand picked, sorted, and 50% de-stemmed. Fermentation lasted 13 days and the grapes were basket pressed and gravity fed into Francois Freres barrels. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, 14% new. This relatively inexpensive blend has a deeper color than the upper-level single-vineyard Lot 10 or the 2017 Mo Chuisle. It seems more concentrated and expressive than the Lot 10 too. Relatively ripe—relatively—it has moderate tannins and projects decent concentration in this tough year, despite that 12.3% alcohol. It is aromatically expressive of classic Pinot Noir, and it is bright and fresh.
