Pinot Noir (92%); Pinot Meunier (8%). Vin de Day Rouge is fifty percent whole-cluster and fifty percent destemmed fruit, with the whole-clustered fruit on the bottom of each fermenter to allow for carbonic maceration. A floral, chillable red for the summer!
This wine is a love letter to my baby son. A true Syrah in a cooler climate tradition, this wine couldn't be mistaken for anything else. 90% Syrah and 10% Viognier co-fermented from Deux Vert Vineyard in the Yamhill Carlton AVA. Blue & black fruit, pepper and spice, with firm but fine tannins.
