2014 Kiser 'En Haut' Pinot Noir
The upper parcel of Kiser vineyard continues to produce some of our most satisfying and stunning Pinot Noirs. Rich garnet red and concentrated, Kiser en Haut is scented with pomegranate, black cherry, cinnamon, clove and violets. The palate shows tannins up front, bright acid and leans towards the red fruit spectrum. Delicious now but worthy of aging.
Situated 200 feet above the ‘En Bas’ parcel, the higher Kiser ‘En Haut’ possesses more compressed sandstone than the lower block, and enjoys further depth from bands of schist permeating the soil. The combination of the two components gives the wine heady aromatics and notable minerality in both aroma and flavor.
