Olivet Grange Vineyard (OGV) is the Inman Family’s sensitively farmed estate vineyard. This 10.45 acre vineyard is located at the junction of Olivet and Piner Roads amidst some of Sonoma County’s and the Russian River Valley’s most respected vineyards. Like our other Pinot Noirs, this wine is made without any additions of water, acid, enzymes, or tannins, and is fermented with the native yeast on the grapes and the naturally available malolactic bacteria.

This is one of the most complex OGV Estate Pinot Noirs that we have released. The Olivet Grange Vineyard is usually picked more than once for still red Pinot Noir. In 2013, an ideal growing year, four separate lots of wine were made from the vineyard on different pick-dates and with varying amounts of whole clusters in the fermentations. The quality of the fruit at Olivet Grange was exceptional. With a little extra Pinot Noir, we decided to push our interest in whole cluster fermentation to the extreme and did one of the four lots carbonically. In 2015, we released Whole Buncha Love®, a special release that features the 4-tons fermented carbonically with 100% whole cluster and 100% wild fermentation. This OGV Estate blend incorporated six barrels from the Whole Buncha Love® lot as well as barrels from three other pick dates. The complexity, nuance, and deliciousness of this wine is amazing. Only 390 cases were produced.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine is pale garnet in color, and has aromas of rose petal, cherry, mace, and forest floor. Tart cherry, strawberry, rhubarb, cherry pit, black truffle, and savory herbs create an ethereal presence on the palate. The wine is balanced with OGV's signature long finish revealing iron and mineral along with pomegranate.
Winemaker Notes
This wine is one of the four lots carbonically fermented with 100% whole clusters. In 2015, we released Whole Buncha Love®, which featured the 4-tons fermented carbonically with 100% whole cluster and 100% wild fermentation. This 2013 OGV Estate blend incorporated six barrels from the Whole Buncha Love® lot as well as barrels from three other pick dates. Temperatures in the fermenters were kept below 80 degrees during the primary fermentations. With the exception of the carbonic lot, the cap was punched down three times each day. At the end of fermentation, the wines were basket pressed and settled overnight before being moved to French oak barrels (primarily Sirugue). The wines were kept on their fine lees and stirred regularly until they were settled for bottling under screwcap.
