2019 Estate Pinot Noir | Double Barrel
This is the first ever vintage of the Estate Double Barrel. This wine will be added into our collectable Estate collection. The Estate Double Barrel bottle is a very special release because this pinot noir blend has a lot of history behind it. The blend includes two of our estate lots, Balistreri Estate Vineyards, which was planted in 1999, and Austin Estate Vineyards, which was planted in 2005. Anthony & Gio selected the best two new french oak barrels that stood out in the lot and blended the two together. This wine is 100% new french oak and 50 cases will be bottled of this wine. The wine is called Double Barrel because there are only 2 barrels of this wine made. The bottle for this wine will have a unique, one of a kind, hand painted image on the bottle.
The texture of the wine is velvet. On the palette the oak is layered in like a braid of hair, woven so tightly together, seamless in the wine. The fruit is extremely concentrated with a tremendous complexity of fruit. Dark, deep, rich flavors. Wine that can go to the cellar for years and years to come.
