Tasting Notes

Los Carneros, Sonoma County
14.1% ABV

The 2009 Vella was the second Pinot Noir released, and it is emblematic of my style of Pinot Noir. The nose is bright and luscious primary cherry and grape with slight hints of vanillin and oak. On the palate, the wine punches with big red berry character in the front of palate and a loud mid-palate that exhibits lots of grape tannin and softer touches of integrated French oak. The finish is long and balanced with medium alcohol and good acidity. This wine is bright, new-school California Pinot Noir with an old-school backbone of acidity and tannin.
