2013 Lucienne Doctor's Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

$45.99

About The Wine: This wine is the most robust of the Lucienne Pinot Noirs, with aromas of dark fruits, red cherry, spices and a hint of toasty vanilla. On the palate, a burst of red cherry, ripe strawberry, and red plum flavors give a fleeting impression of sweetness, which is moderated on the finish by rounded tannins.

After harvesting the fruit, we de-stem and hand-sort the grapes before moving them into open-top fermenters where we use gentle, manual punch-downs to protect the delicacy of the Pinot Noir grapes.  Once fermentation is complete, we rack the free-run juice into French oak barrels (50% new) where the wine ages for 14 months before bottling.

About Doctor’s Vineyard: Located in the center of the Santa Lucia Highlands, this vineyard experiences warmer temperatures and higher winds than other Hahn vineyards do.  Wide row spacing in Doctor’s (11 feet by 7 feet) also offers greater sun exposure, and the fog burns off early in the day at this site.
