VML 2017 San Remo Pinot Noir
San Remo is always one of our first vineyards in the barn. There is no well on the property, so the vines must fight and struggle. The setting crop is always light, and this wine almost always has powerful tannins due to the afternoon sun, forcing the grape skins to grow strong and durable. If you're patient enough to wait and let the skins soften, the resulting wine has fabulously soft, but powerful tannin expression.
