Description

Overview: Poseidon Vineyard, located at the confluence of Carneros Creek and the Napa River, was planted in 1973 by the Molnar Family. The maritime environment of the Carneros grape-growing season delivers cool, foggy mornings followed by warm days that slowly nurture ripening. Poseidon Vineyard is planted with two clones of Pinot Noir: Martini and Dijon 115. This Estate Pinot Noir is a blend of wines picked from different blocks planted with the two clones. The fruit was harvested by hand and fermented separately. As soon as the fermentations were complete, the wines were pressed gently into 100% Kádár Tokaj oak, adding a signature spiciness to the blend that complements the fruit character. Once the fermentations are completed, the wines are pressed into 100% Kádár Tokaj oak, of which 20% is new. The wine is aged there for approximately 16 months. Racked only once before bottling, the result is a very pure, fruit-filled expression of Pinot Noir.

Tasting Notes: This offering is bright, vibrant and darkly hued in the glass. The aromas hint at dark cherries steeped with clove and nutmeg as well as plums at the peak of the season, when they burst open with darkly colored juice and flavor. The essence of these aromatics is also present in the mouth. The wine tastes dark, meaty and bold and carries a lot of extract, which is assuredly a result of the drought growing conditions in 2014. More delicate flavors of rhubarb and raspberries do contribute, but it's as if they were baked together in a cinnamon crust. This soft yet textured wine will please the earnest taster and will further reward the patient one after some time in the bottle.
