2018 Baileyana

2018 Baileyana "El Pico" Pinot Noir

This vintage of El Pico is balanced and beautifully extracted with aromas of strawberry jam, cherry, and vanilla. There is a hint of cotton candy along with traces of cinnamon throughout the wine. The crisp, clean fruit matches well with silky sweet oak tannins. The oak provides a nice backbone but does not overpower the balanced acidity. This medium-bodied Pinot finishes with delightful strawberry notes.

Vineyard Notes
This wine comes from select blocks from a single vineyard, which is SIP Certified Sustainable. The section of the vineyard is named Firepeak to pay homage to the extinct volcanoes in the area. Planted with various Pinot Noir clones, two low yielding, small clustered clones, 667 and 943, were selected for this wine. A celebrated clone from Burgundy, the 667 “Swan” clone imparts a dark color, elegant spectrum of flavors including beautiful red fruit and soft tannins. Clone 943, also Burgundian, is also beloved for the dark, soft elegance it brings to the wine.
