2018 'Thistle Hill' Pinot noir

Initially a burst of rose petal and anise jump out of the glass. Then, at first sip, married flavors of cranberry and almond coat your palate, followed by cherry bark and vanilla from 100% new french oak barrel aging.

Thistle Hill is a neighboring vineyard that Cória Estates planted and managed for several years, though it does not own the property. It is named as such because before it was planted, the hillside was covered in Thistle patches. It is one of the highest peaks in our area and has a steep slope facing all four directions, North, South, East and West. The label is a topographic map of the hillside.

Production style: De-stemmed to Macro 48 Fermentor Bins. Inoculated with yeast, and finished full primary fermentation. Punched down twice daily until fermentation complete, then Pressed, settled and barreled. MLB inoculation in barrel, fully finished. Aged for 27 months in barrel, 100% New French Oak.
