2014 Hudson Vineyards Pinot Noir (1 X 750 ML)
The Hudson Vineyards are planted in the rolling hills north of highway 12 in the Napa Valley’s Carneros District. Located at the southernmost end of the valley, the grapes are favorably influenced by the nightly cooling effect of the closely located San Pablo Bay. The low temperatures and slow cloud burn off allow for longer hang time on the vines, developing flavor and intensity with mild sun exposure. With soils dominated by well draining alluvials and loam, the vines are able to glean the necessary nutrients and moisture needed to produce balanced, fruitful wines.
Aromas of Damson plum and cherry compote are enhanced with a touch of cola spice. The rich palate is full of boysenberry and baked cherries, with a hint of white pepper enhancing a long, balanced finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
This is the producer's first vintage from Hudson, one of the most sought-after sites in the appellation, and one not widely planted to the variety. Light and lush with a velvety ripeness, this special wine shines in pomegranate, earthy truffle and a turn of smoked meat. Robust, it maintains balance amidst its brawn.- Wine Enthusiast (February 1, 2017)
