2013 Bouchaine Gee Vineyard Pinot Noir
An intoxicating nose of Morello cherry, tea roses, and five spice. The palate explodes with succulent cherry and blueberry flavors with rich mocha notes on the finish. The blend is 100% St. Clair selection from the original vineyard planted by Jim St. Clair in 1968. The Gee vineyard is now over 30 years old and is completely dry farmed, sending roots deep into the soil and concentrating flavors.
Vintage 2013 started with a warm spring, then the vines quickly went through bud break, bloom and set. Beautiful weather brought a bountiful crop. Luckily we were blessed with a long, perfect growing season, allowing for mature ripening and lush, layered flavors.
