Holding my Heart in my Hand with Pinot
Lately we've been digging through our wine cellar looking for older bottles to open. This 2008 Hearts & Hands Pinot Noir was pulled.
The grapes for this wine were harvested on September 26 - October 2, 2008. Fermented in 100% French Oak of which 27% was new.The wine was bottled September 29, 2009 and 251 cases were made.
The Pinot Noir was a tad brickish in color. The aromas evaporating from the glass were strawberry marmalade with essences of vanilla. The palate was bursting with fresh strawberries, cloves and a hint of spice on the finish.
A wonderful wine from a wonderful winery!
