    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pinot Noir specialist James MacPhail has complete control over the creation of Sequana's single-vineyard wines. Grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted, then cold-soaked prior to fermentation to maximize flavor and color extraction.

    In small open-topped tanks, each block was fermented separately, using primarily native yeasts. Other lots were fermented with yeasts unique to each individual lot. Hand punch-downs extracted and elevated the Pinot Noir flavors and the wine was aged sur lie in French oak barrels for 11 months.

    A lively bouquet of rose and sandalwood accompany complex red fruit: plum, cherry and wild strawberry. Layered, balanced and full-bodied, the wine finishes with length and finesse.

    Critical Acclaim:

    You'll find an unusual note of freshly crushed black pepper in this Pinot Noir. Not overwhelming, but enough to vie with the cherries, cola and sandalwood. It's and excellent wine, dry and silky, although not on a par with the magnificent 2007.

    Beautiful, bright red color with long legs. Attractive nose of vanilla, orange peel, dark/bitter chocolate, cinnamon, red cherry & pomegranate. Palate confirms the nose plus med+ tannin and some burn after swallow. Complex wine. I would have bought a case if it weren't priced at $50 per bottle.
