The warm and inviting aroma of praline, plum, and berry combine with the essence of sea spray which is characteristic of the fruit's influence from the Pacific Ocean. On the palate the wine is fruit forward and complex with hints of fig and dried fruit. It is a beautiful wine that pair well with food and stands strong on its own.
Maritime is a proprietary name for the very best Pinot Noir from the vintage. The 2013 Maritime Pinot Noir is predominantly from two vineyards located just miles from the Pacific Ocean. This vintage also includes lots of Marimar Estate Vineyard and Saltonstall Vineyard. Combined, the vineyards are planted with Dijon clones 115, 667 and 777.
The primary processes include cold soaking for 6-8 days in stainless steel followed by fermentation to 14-16 brix then transfer to barrel and fermented to dryness. Hands on from start to finish selecting the finest barrels before bottling for this reserve Pinot Noir.
