*2015 The Dream Pinot Noir
The Dream Pinot Noir, Lodi California, USA 2015
The first thing to note with this wine is its bright cherry red color. The aromas begin with raspberry and blackberry bramble, mixed with vanilla bean, mint, and clove. The entry is filled with crisp acidity and flavors of raspberry, strawberry and cranberry. The medium body gives way to spicier notes fresh sage, and dried thyme and coriander.
The grapes from forth generation vineyards benefit from the deep and rich soils that make-up the on the western edge of the California Appellation. The fruit benefits from warm sunny days and cool nights as a result of gentle breezes coming from the Pacific Ocean. This allows the fruit to mature and have a proper balance between fruit character and structure. The fruit was harvested at optimal ripeness and was crushed and fermented in stainless steel vessels.
