Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Emeritus Pinot Noir 2016 - Hallberg Ranch
The year started with above-average rainfall which helped replenish soil moisture after four years of drought. Our dry farming and attention to pruning and cluster thinning prevented any mildew risk from excess moisture and warm rains. Budbreak was early because of the warm winter, and the spring and summer seasons had moderate temperatures. It was another year of low yields with tiny, dark clusters lending themselves to the intense color and flavors we’ve come to expect from our dry farmed vineyard.
The 2016 Hallberg Ranch Pinot is pure, elegant, layered and complex. The wine is reminiscent of a warm black cherry tart dusted with cinnamon. There are hints of caramelized sugar and freshly toasted almonds. The wine is driven by dark spices and earth, with a sturdy frame from fine-grained tannins. All of these elements seamlessly combine to create the distinctive wine that is Hallberg Ranch.
