Our No sulfite added, Organic Pinot Noir. Dark forest fruit and dark chocolate on the nose. The creamy mouthfeel opens up to dark fruit, spice and licorice on the palate and finishes with well integrated acidity and rounded tannin. A pure expression of our terroir.
The 2010 Pinot Noir Life is a certified biodynamic wine with no sulfites added. The winery has been working on this project since 2002 trying to build natural anti-oxidants into the fruit. Aside from that significant fact, the wine received essentially the same elevage as the winery’s other Pinot offerings. It is an early bottled 2010, a vintage that looks to be superb. Dark ruby red in color, it sports an alluring nose of exotic spices, rose petal, black cherry, and black raspberry. In the glass it opens to reveal a youthful personality, a confiture of black fruits, an excellent acid structure, and impeccable balance. If I were to speculate about its aging potential not knowing it received no sulfur addition, I would say drink it through 2020+. Knowing that it was made with no added sulfur, handling and storage will be of great importance.
