LA MASIA PINOT NOIR - Red wine
Producer Notes 2013
DESTINATION OF ORIGIN: Russian River Valley
Don Miguel Vineyard
La Masía means The Farmhouse in Catalonia, my home region, and our winery is designed to resemble a classic Catalan farmhouse. My family has grown grapes in Spain since the 17th century and our philosophy has always been to produce a wine as an extension of farming the vineyard.
This vintage displays classic Russian River/Green Valley: luscious, vibrant nose of black cherry and ripe red fruits like
Santa Rosa plums, with background notes of orange peel and clove. The fi rm, rich tannins promise a long life. I would
recommend serving this wine at cellar temperature, between 58-60° F.
The grapes were harvested September 3 - 18, hand sorted, destemmed and fermented in small stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged in premium French oak barrels, 36% new, coopered by Remond, Rousseau and Marchive from the forests of Bertranges, Allier and Central France. It was bottled, unfined and unfiltered, in August 2014.
