2015 Peterson Vineyard Pinot Noir
Handcrafted by renowned winemaker Ed Kurtzman, the Mansfield-Dunne 2015 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 (70% new) for 11 months before bottling. This is the most deeply colored Mansfield-Dunne pinot noir yet, probably due to the small 2015 crop. The nose is closed with cola, anise and French oak. On the palate, there is bright, racy acidity with ripe cherry and spicy SLH Pinot fruit. The medium-long finish will certainly lengthen with time in the bottle. Wait until 2018 to drink this and enjoy it through 2024.
