Winemaking Notes
The 2016 Jane’s Vineyard Pinot Noir has a lovely ruby red hue with aromas of black cherry, plum and earth. On the palate, this medium bodied wine begins with a wild brambly berry note along with purple floral characters and baking spices that shine through with balance, acidity and a long lingering finish. Warm, bright and full of flavor, the Jane’s Pinot Noir is a wonderful combination of fruit, earth and spice. Enjoy this wine with a warm beet salad, wild mushroom pasta or a roasted pork loin.
Vineyard Notes
The vines at Jane’s Vineyard generally show moderated vigor in their growth habit, mainly due to the acidic, nutrient poor soil and good drainage from the gravelly loam. The Huichica soil is shallow, with a hardpan at a low depth, so we planted on 101-14 rootstock which has a shallower rooting angle to match the soil profile. Correspondingly, the vines get water stressed, which we watch closely during the warmer months of the summer.
Production Notes
El Niño brought some good rain the winter of 2015, but February was pretty dry. Then it warmed up a touch and the vines woke up, a bit later than the previous few years. Showers soaked the vineyards in the middle of March and filled the ground with much needed water. Beautiful warm summer days led to verasion and sugar accumulation in the berries. Mid-August through mid-September was filled with overcast days and cooler weather, which prolonged our starting pick date. We started picking on August 30, and finished on September 10, with higher brix and pH than the average.
