2005 Adelsheim Vineyard Quarter Mile Lane Vineyard Pinot Noir

Longer maceration performed before and after fermentation leading to more tannin for aging. This wine should age 20+ years. Fruit from this vineyard makes up a large percentage of the Adelsheim Reserve bottling (since 1988). · Black cherry is the calling card for this wine which has excellent fruit purity. Very soft in the mouth and easily approachable now. Finishes with a black cherry flourish with staying power. Excellent. Reviewed August 23, 2012
