The wine's high acid, good structure and bright fruit suggest that this Pinot Noir will age gracefully. Although it is drinking beautifully now, it will undoubtedly gain in complexity with more time in the bottle.

Winemaker Notes
"The Olivet Grange fruit was fermented in four six-ton open top fermenters. The clones ? 114, 115, 667 and 777 were kept separate from the time they arrived at the winery until they were brought together just prior to bottling on 12 August 2005. The destemmed fruit was left to cold soak for 4 days. On the fourth day the temperature was raised and the lots were inoculated the following day. The must in each fermenter was punched down three times a day for between 20 and 30 minutes to aid in extraction of color, tannins and flavors. The temperature of the tanks was not allowed to exceed 86 degrees Fahrenheit, and clone 667 lot was held to only 68 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature preferred by the Swiss isolated with which the must was inoculated. These cooler temperatures preserve the aromas and more delicate flavors of Pinot Noir. At the end of primary fermentation, the wines were pressed off and moved to French oak: new (35%), one-year (30%) and older barrels (35%) from a variety of coppers: Remond, Sirugue, Rousseau, Seguin Moreau, Billon and Francois Freres. 50% of the barrels were inoculated with Enoferm Beta and the balance were allowed to completed MLF with indigenous bacteria. MLF completed in late November. The wines rested in barrel for 11 months and received weekly batonage until one both prior to bottling."
