Harvest: The grapes were harvested on September 11, 2012 at a sugar of 25.7 brix. The acid was 5.22TA and 3.85pH

Vinification: The grapes were destemed and the whole berries chilled down to 50 degrees for a five day cold soak. Native yeasts were allowed to begin the fermentation which lasted for 7 days for a total of 12 days of maceration. Native malolactic fermentation was subsequently completed in barrel.

Aging: The wine was aged sur lie for 9 months then racked clean off of the lees. An additional three months was allowed for clarification before the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Barrels: The wine was aged in 60% new French Oak using Medium Plus toasted barrels from the finest cooperages in France.

Tasting: Black Cherry, Sasaparilla root, caramel, allspice, boysenberry and red licorice aromas swirl out of the glass. The soft bright fruit greets you elegantly on the palate with incredible viscosity and glycerol maintaining a deft balance.

Prediction: I have long been making pinot noir from coastal vineyards and the intensity of this site on the Sonoma Coast has captivated me for years. Steep west facing slopes with shallow rocky soils produce miniscule yields that concentrate the pinot noir flavors. The 2012 Foretell Pinot Noir is showing its richness now and is perfect for enjoying with aged goat cheese or duck confit. It will continue to age gracefully with the intense fruit enduring for at least another 8-10 years when the roundness and viscosity will be at its peak.
