Grapes for Cakebread's Two Creeks Vineyard are harvested exclusively from this Anderson Valley estate vineyard where the cool, foggy mornings and warm late afternoons are ideal for ripening Pinot Noir grapes to perfection. The vineyard features six superb French Pinot Noir clones, which yield small-berried grapes with intense, concentrated flavors and ripe, round tannins. Each lot receives a three-day cold soak before fermenting separately in open-top stainless steel tanks with gentle, manual punch-downs. Following a maceration of several weeks with daily assessments of color and tannin development, the wine was transferred to 30% new French oak barrels. In spring, the wine was blended and barrel-aged for another 6-7 months. Total barrel aging is 14 months.

Fragrant aromas of sweet black cherry, raspberry and rose petal introduce the rich, pure fruit of this fresh and lively pinot noir. Dense mid-palate flavors of ripe black cherry, red cherry, strawberry and plum, supported by fine, supple tannins, offer a layered complexity and glide into a round, long finish highlighting bright raspberry, cherry and mineral tones. Delicious now, this lovely pinot noir will develop additional complexity with another 3-5 years of bottle age.
