Samba. Named for our version of the reverse turn, we mark our Pinot Noir by concentrated flavors and strength. Our hallmark dark berry fruit aromas and flavors have a richness and structure this year, that makes this Pinot stand tall. Make your move with a perfectly grilled lamb chop or savory stuffed mushrooms.
All of our fruit passes through a small de-stemmer and is never crushed. The fruit is harvested by hand with scissors, rather than knives, to prevent bruising and laceration. 70% whole berry fermentation with 4-7 days of cold soak and 15 – 20 days of skin contact account for a deeper color and richer flavor profile in the final wine. A gentle drain and press is followed by a gravity fed racking to barrel. Native inoculation of malolactic fermentation ensues and the wines are then bottled after 10 months in barrel.
