2006 Pinot Noir
AmericanWinery.com is pleased to provide you with Winery-Direct information.
The wine has a dark, rich garnet color and aromas of Bing cherries and lilacs. Fruit flavors of concentrated red currants and simpler fresh plums are well integrated due to the secure background of subtle new oak and minerals.
The 2006 season in Hyampom Valley of Trinity County California made well balanced, bright, and refined wines. Spring came in cold and continued to bloom. This coolness facilitated a naturally low yielding season in turn made more concentrated flavored wines than normal. Summer was mild and constantly even in temperature. Consistent with other seasons, 2006 Summer has warm to hot days and very cool nights which preserved the natural acids in the grapes and thus brightened the rich flavors of this vintage. Tannins of this year for the red wines turned out to be smoother than normal and less tannic which balanced out the elegance of our wines. Overall, 2006 was an excellent consistently smooth season which yielded concentrated well balanced wines which enabled us to continue our family legacy of making small lots of honest hand crafted wines that accentuates varietal characters.
