2010 Heller Estate Pinot Noir

100% Pinot Noir

Spicy aromas paired with subtle floral notes of rose and violets. Also look for a lovely earthiness/mineralty paired with freshly picked cherries. Bright and lively with a cherry core and medium-light body. Refreshing cranberry juice and sour cherry pit finish with dusty tannins. Also, notes of pepper and cedar mingle with elegant minerality. Enjoy this classical Pinot with a lovely wedge of Comté cheese, trout with bacon or a nice mushroom risotto.

Production notes

The 2010 growing season was the coldest since 1998 in Carmel Valley. Cool weather in May led to a protracted bloom and set. Although our season was late, we had above-average crop loads until a very unusual 108-plus degree heat wave came in August, just after veraison. Many grapes were harvested roughly 1-1.5 degrees Brix below average due to a cool September and October. Grape acidity was nicely preserved, and extended hang time has resulted in great wines.
