* PEACH BLOSSOM * YUZU * WILD STRAWBERRY *
Made from Pinot Noir grapes (clones: Martini, Pommard, Mount Eden & Wadenswil) grown on the Scribe Estate on the southwest facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain. Harvested early in the season when fruit is full of the bright, high-toned acidity. 100% whole cluster direct pressed, followed by a long, cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve vibrant aromatics. Energetic and fruit forward on the nose with a dry finish.
2019 meteorological data: Northern California experienced another cool and wet winter which kept the vines dormant through late March/Early April. The springtime brought a mix of heat spells followed by cool and wet weather. Our initial predictions were for a later harvest, but the warm summer months hastened the growing cycle of the vines. Harvest started for us August 14th with Rose of Pinot Noir and ended with our Atlas West Cabernet Sauvignon in mid-October.
