100% Pinot Noir. The 2014 Nautilus Pinot Noir boasts a deep ruby color and opens with an aromatic bouquet of fragrant florals, ripe wild blackberries, plums, and spices. The palate, of medium body, is graced with balanced structure, refinement, and good intensity. The vintage saw a mild spring, a settled December, and careful fruit thinning due to higher cropping levels. While early spring was warmer than usual, an early March harvest resulted in premium Pinot grapes before a brief rainfall in mid-March. This vintage's standout is its fine tannin structure, contributing to the wine's soft and generous nature. Hand-harvested Pinot Noir clones underwent indigenous yeast fermentation with selected whole berries, followed by aging in French oak Barriques until March 2015. ABV 13.5%
