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!

TASTING NOTES: In vintages when Mother Nature extends her generosity, I take full advantage. The color of this wine is a testament to this philosophy; it is deep, dark and mesmerizing. Dried cranberries and tamarind pop on the nose, followed by spices, minerals, wet stone, ash and  beeswax. The entry on the palate is gentle, while evolving in the  mid-palate and finishing strong with bright minerality. Upon the  second sip, you’ll experience decadence, richness, and luscious fruit with silky smooth tannins.

HARVEST & VINEYARD: Preceded by one of the most difficult vintages that I have experienced in my 30 years in the industry, 2013 was one of the best that I’ve had the opportunity and honor to work with. It goes to show that Mother Nature can be equally frugal as she is generous. This year’s gift 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!
