Winemaker Notes - Part of the magic of Artesa’s estate vineyard is that it’s really several vineyards in one, with a patchwork of soils and varying combinations of rootstocks and clones that impart different characteristics to the grapes that grow there. In 2010, a cool growing year by any standard , the combination of grapes from several blocks brought great complexity to the wine, with dark cherry, raspberry and strawberry flavors and a silky texture that is at once intense and elegant. A careful measure of new French oak added hints of spice – vanilla, cedar, cinnamon – for added dimension and complexity. 2010 will long be remembered as a vintage that produced expressive, elegant Pinot Noirs with phenomenal natural acidity. I look forward to drinking this wine for many years to come.
