Notes on the Saintsbury Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard 750ML 2009

Wine Maker Notes Pinot Noir is very sensitive to small variations of soil, aspect and climate, and after more than twenty vintages of working with great vineyards, we have a good idea which vineyards stand out. We wanted to capture the essence of those differences so we created the Vineyard Series, each one of which highlights a unique and compelling site. We work very closely with the vineyard owners to ensure the best possible expression of the potential each site offers. In 2005, we stepped outside of our familiar Carneros region to create a Vineyard Series bottling from Anderson Valley's Cerise Vineyard Vines have to struggle on the thin lean soils and steep slopes at the thousand foot elevation of Cerise, and the result is small grapes on small bunches. The wine possesses intense black cherry aromas with herbal underpinnings enhanced by rich middle palate and excellent acidity.

Technical Notes Cerise is a celebrated vineyard planted on the steep southwest facing hillside slopes just north of the town of Boonville in the Anderson Valley AVA. Saintsbury’s relationship with the site formed in 2005; our winemaker, Jerome Chery, worked with the vineyard prior and brought it into Saintsbury’s single-vineyard collection. Today, we enjoy 4.3 acres from this spectacular 37 acre-vineyard. A vintage characterized by a cool growing season which produced slow ripening, lowyielding, high quality fruit. An Indian Summer aided in the full and final development of the grapes on the vine, resulting in optimal fruit coming in at Harvest.
