About This Wine
2014 Dreaming Tree Pinot Noir is a blend of Pinot Noir from some of the best vineyards in California, with flavors and aromas of black cherry, wild strawberry, and toasty caramel. Complex with generous fruit and supple tannins. It pairs well with roast chicken or pork, grilled salmon, and mushroom risotto.
The 2014 growing season was hot and dry, pushing harvest up to the earliest to date. Fortunately, nighttime temperatures still dipped into the 50s, which was great for maintaining the natural fruit acidity. September also cooled a little, providing much needed time to catch up on getting all of the grapes in. In October, the heat returned and ripened the fruit for the balance of harvest. Overall, this year delivered big fruit expression, great tannin development, and nice ripeness across all varietals.
