Five Scheid Estate Vineyards were used in making this most compelling example of the elusive Pinot Noir. Small lots from different Pinot Noir clones were used to choose the distinctive flavors, intensity and color of this Scheid Vineyards 2013 Estate Grown Pinot Noir. The wonderful 2013 growing season allowed for an almost textbook vintage with a sunny firmament prevalent until the final grapes were harvested.
This 100% Pinot Noir wine is both elegant and blessed with finesse, with a supple yet lush mouthfeel and loads of bright red fruit aromas. It contains vivid flavors of black cherry and raspberry with overtones of spice and vanilla. Aged 10 months in a combination of oak barrels (French 76%, European 18% and American 6%).
