Catalina Sounds Pinot Noir 2022
Harvested over 10 days, the 2022 Pinot Noir grapes for Catalina Sounds deliver intense flavor and structure. Initially a bit brooding, this vintage opens up revealing baking spices, blueberry and cassis, plus lifted red fruits and cinnamon. Medium bodied, it boasts juicy red cherries, soft acid and fine tannins. Pair it with duck pancakes, grilled quail, pulled pork or seared salmon with beetroot. All fruit was carefully handled in the winery, destemmed, then left at ambient temperature on skins to ferment before being drained and pressed to French oak barrels, around 15-20% of which were new.
