Pinot Noir specialist James MacPhail has complete control over the creation of Sequanaa s single-vineyardwines. Grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted, then cold-soaked prior to fermentation to maximizeflavor and color extraction.In small open-topped tanks, each block was fermented separately, using primarilynative yeasts. Other lots were fermented with yeasts unique to each individual lot.Hand punch-downs extracted and elevated the Pinot Noir flavors and the wine wasaged sur lie in French oak barrels for 11 months.Displaying the classic qualities of the Santa Lucia Highlands, this silky Pinot Noirhas pretty floral and citrus aromas. Warm Asian spices accompany bright, lastingflavors of citrus, rose petal and cherry
Rich, warm spice aromas introduce complex, blue fruit flavors. Juicy blueberry and plum balance fine tannins and bright acidity. Deep and intense, the wine's layers of flavor continue through the lasting finish.
