MAS CARVALLS PINOT NOIR - Red wine
Producer Notes 2013
DESTINATION OF ORIGIN: Sonoma Coast
Doña Margarita Vineyard
We have named this bottling Mas Cavalls after the Catalan name for Horse Farm, since our equestrian center lies right below the vineyard.
Elegant nose, with classic varietal aromas of wild cherry, clove and sandalwood plus the charactieristic note of forest fl oor from this special vineyard. The tannins are supple and graceful, and the palate is round, complex and fl eshy. I would recommend serving it at cellar temperature, between 58-60° F.
The grapes were harvested September 10- 23. After minimal crushing, they fermented in small stainless steel tanks, with no whole clusters. The wine was aged in premium French oak barrels, 36% new, coopered by Remond from the forest of Bertranges, Marchive and Rousseau from the Center of France. It was bottled, unfined and unfiltered, in August 2014.
