K&L Notes

Rare and highly collectable! Kistler's low-yielding (less than two tons per acre), dry farmed Pinot Noir vineyard in the Russian River Valley contains a mix of clones from French and American sources. The vinification of this Pinot Noir begins with an extended cold maceration of the grapes with their juice (for the extraction of flavors without tannin), followed by a traditional fermentation with 50-100% stem inclusion. Total cuvaison time is up to four weeks and the wine is aged in 100% new French oak barrels for 18 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
