2013 Herrera Esmeralda, Pinot Noir

The 2013 was one of the best vintages that I’ve had the opportunity to work with and afforded me the opportunity to craft a one-of-a-kind Pinot Noir that will be as memorable as my daughter Esmeralda. My thirdborn daughter is shy, mischievous, elegant, classy, and strives for  perfection. To me, that sounds like Pinot Noir!

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Red cherry and cranberry aromas give way to notes of blackberry, clove, rich earth, and rose petal. Luscious flavors of dark and red fruits are highlighted by hints of cinnamon and clove. The soft mouthfeel is balanced by firm yet fine-grained tannins and a finish that is long and complex.
Production Notes
The 2013 growing season proved to be an excellent year in Napa Valley. It was slightly warmer than 2012, resulting in an overall earlier growing season. Lower than normal rainfall paired with moderate spring weather brought early bud break and bloom. Sunny skies throughout the summer months led to early veraison and harvest. Warm daytime temperatures followed by cool nights prior to harvest produced evenly ripened fruit with ideal hang time.
Food Pairing Notes
Roasted turkey with cranberry sauce, grilled salmon, or wild game.
