Kalin Cellars Pinot Noir ‘Cuvee DD’ 2000 750ml
- Pinot Noir
The grape source is Demostene Ranch located in the Alexander Valley. The vineyard is the oldest Pinot Noir plantation in this region, and was established with a clone which produces small berries and low yields. The soil is a mixture of clay, silt and limestone. The vineyard is dry farmed and within one mile of the Russian River.
Demostene Ranch traditionally produces intense wines which possess exceptional fruit definition, combined with a richly textured palate and great length of finish. The particular vineyard characteristics are reminiscent of violets, wild red fruits (cassis and cherries), exotic oriental spices, sous-bois, etc.
NOTE: Due to the age on this wine, the cork may be difficult to extract and does not imply that the wine is faulty. You should also expect the wine to show nutty and oxidative notes similar to sherry.
