Ritual Pinot Noir 2011
Meticulously hand crafted, harvested fruit enjoys cold maceration for 3-5 days for color extraction before whole berries are fermented with wild yeasts to increase depth and intensity. Frequent, gentle punch downs in small open-top tanks bring out deep color while malolactic fermentation and aging up to 14 months in French oak barrels (40% new) add complexity and elegance. The resulting wine brims with bright fruit aromas and flavors of black cherries, blueberry, raspberry and plum.
