Handcrafted by renowned winemaker Ed Kurtzman, the 2011 Peterson Vineyard Pinot Noir contains a mix of all 5 clones planted in the vineyard (828, Pommard (05), 667, 777, and 115) and was aged in French oak (40% new) for 11 months before bottling. It is bright, medium garnet color with a vibrant nose of raspberries, rhubarb, Santa Lucia Highlands spice and a hint of fall leaves. The palate is youthful and supple and is well-framed with ripe tannins and balanced acidity. Berry fruits and Asian spices dominate while there are also some black pepper and smoked meat flavors as well. The long finish predicts that the 2011 Mansfield-Dunne Pinot will be improving for a few years and be at its best sometime after 2015.
