2014 Peterson Vineyard Pinot Noir magnum
Handcrafted by renowned winemaker Ed Kurtzman, the Mansfield-Dunne 2014 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 (50% new) for 15 months before bottling. The nose is a combination of clove, toast, wood strawberries, cinnamon, and wild mushrooms. With a palate weight similar to the 2012 Peterson, this 2014 delivers a dense core of ripe and spicy fruit that is framed by moderate acidity and firm tannin. There’s a nice flavor of French oak on the long finish. Give this wine until late 2016 to start to open up and enjoy this through 2022.
