2018 Reserve Pinot Noir
2018 Reserve Pinot Noir
"An attractively fresh and spicy pinot that has some savory complexity, ahead of fresh, sliced red cherries and berries.  The palate offers a very concentrated and focused serving of rich, ripe, poached red cherries.  Super long and elegant.  Drink or hold."

Production notes

The fruit was gently de-stemmed, cold soaked for four days, then gradually allowed to warm up prior to fermentation. The fruit was pumped over once a day at the onset of fermentation and then punched down once per day until dryness. It was then settled for 2-3 days prior to being racked to a variety of French oak barrels for ageing.

Other notes

2018 was the seventh in a string of warm vintages at Bjornson. It was defined by a very dry summer, which made for small clusters and a relatively small crop. July was hot, leading to the first signs of veraison in early August, but our reliable evening maritime winds kept night-time temperatures cool throughout July and August, preserving acidity in the fruit as it ripened. September finally brought a couple of welcome rain events that refreshed the vines and kept them active through the final ripening period.
