2013 Peterson Vineyard pinot noir
Handcrafted by renowned winemaker Ed Kurtzman, the Mansfield-Dunne 2013 Peterson Vineyard pinot noir contains a mix of all 5 clones planted in the vineyard (828, Pommard (05), 667, 777, and 115). The wine was aged in French oak (67% new) for 13 months before bottling. Garnet color, bright nose of ripe strawberries, Santa Lucia Highlands spice, and toasty oak. This is a very vibrant wine with an abundance of bright fruit and acidity on the palate. All aspects are in balance to allow the wine to develop slowly over a period of time, and the long finish is also a good sign of aging potential. Anticipated maturity: 2016 - 2024.
