2010 Skewis Peters Vineyard Pinot Noir (750ml)

Skewis Peters Vineyard Pinot Noir:

2010  will go down in history as one of the most difficult years that I have seen in  my 33 years as a winemaker. The nightmare began with chilly, wet weather in the  spring (6” of rain in April!) which prevented pollination of the flowers and  significantly reduced the crop. It continued with one of the coolest Julys on  record which slowed ripening, and then extreme heat in August and September,  resulting in additional loss of fruit. To give an example, I had to make numerous  passes through the vineyards in the 2 weeks before harvest to clip off  sun-damaged clusters. The remaining fruit was of excellent quality but produced  30% less wine. The wines are beautiful examples of the terroirs from which they  come, but the quantities are extremely limited.

Deep  pomegranate color. Intense fruit aromas with racy notes of raspberry, black  cherry, hint of chocolate with cedar and clove adding an herbal impression.  Smooth entry with no edges, slight grip and balanced oak. Rich fruit flavors of  dark berries, plum, cherry cola with a subtle orange zest note.  Long and generous finish. Total Cases: 90 cases produced
