2014 Legacy Nancy's Pinot Noir
Bold, Opulent, Spicy and Expansive
Named after Bill Stoller’s sister, this wine is bold. Darker fruits, blackberry and black cherry, are coupled with dried herb and spice in the full bodied palate. Nancy’s is plush, rich and spicy. The high percentage of whole cluster in its fermentation, 50-75%, drives the spice, herb and tannin in the wine.
A temperate spring and perfect weather around fruit set coupled with a terrific summer of warm temperatures and dry days led to a beautiful vintage of perfectly sized, lusciously ripe fruit. We had our earliest harvest on record, starting with our younger Pinot Noir sections on September 8th. The wines from this vintage are concentrated and fruit driven, illustrating both restraint in winemaking--letting our vineyard display its nature as well as power of a robust growing season.
