2019 Estate Pinot Noir
Our 2019 Estate Pinot Noir is a blend of barrels selected from different lots each year, made with the intention of producing a wine that is enjoyable young and representative of the Van Duzer Estate. In 2019 we included Pommard and 113 barrels that add a bright fruit nose, but have delicate structure. 777 fills in structure and density for the wine. Our Estate Pinot Noir is barrel aged for 11 months in 30% new French oak.
Black cherry, vanilla, and red liquorice the bright fruit backdrop for delicate notes of violet, rose, and cedar. On the palate, the wine has a fine-grained tannin and flavor reminiscent of black tea. Medium acid and a round body provide a smooth and lasting finish.
