Truchard Vineyards

2016 Pinot Noir

Carneros               

100% Pinot Noir

100% Estate

2016 Vintage
Truchard had a cool stretch in the final 1/3 of the growing season which is apparent in our Pinot Noir.  Cooler weather, especially in the last stretch of a vintage, keeps sugar development down as tannins, flavors, and color evolve is one of the benefits of growing in Carneros annually.  But when the climate is aided by weather conditions like the vintage 2016, it provides added aromatics, color, and complexity along with giving our team a perfect window to pick each small lot with precision.

Tasting Notes:
We can blend up to 12 different blocks that vary in the soil, elevation, exposure, clonal selection, and age of vines from our estate.  This provides us the ability to create a more complex Pinot Noir that is approachable young and will keep for years to come.  The color is a beautiful deep garnet in the glass.  On the nose, you will find a blend of fresh cranberry, blackberry, red raspberry compote, and fresh cherry all highlighted by spices the likes of clove, allspice, nutmeg, and a touch of vanilla.  On the palate, the flavors follow the nose with fine tannins and balanced acidity that lead to a long pleasant finish.  This is a true crowd pleaser for a reason. 

Abridged Version:
The 2016 Pinot Noir is deep garnet in the glass with fresh cranberry, blackberry, red raspberry compote, and fresh cherry all highlighted by spices the likes of clove, allspice, nutmeg, and a touch of vanilla with fine tannins and balanced acidity that lead to a long pleasant finish.  This is a true crowd pleaser for a reason, being approachable young and will keep for years to come.
