Magnum 2009 Kiser "Combe de Grès" Pinot Noir

The inaugural vintage of Kiser Combe de Grès is a deeply structured and powerful expression from this esteemed vineyard. Firmly rooted in a unique band of sandstone, this is an exquisitely and earthy-driven Pinot Noir, with classic forest floor and dried tea leaf aromatics. Damson plum and dark, bramble berry notes dominate the palate, while bright acidity and dense tannins assure exceptional cellar potential.

VINEYARD NOTES:
Approximately 10 miles from the ocean in the deep end of Anderson Valley, Kiser is our coolest vineyard site. ‘Combe de Grès’, French for “sandstone comb, or small ravine of sandstone”, derives from a visibly distinct section of hillside vines where a narrow ravine sweeps down from the upper block to the lower block. Unlike the upper block’s pure decomposed sandstone and the lower block’s rich clay, the small ravine is laden with gravelly sandstone. These unique characteristics provided the optimal setting for Wells Guthrie to graft “sélection massale” clones in 2007.

VINTAGE NOTES:
2009 started with an early bud break followed by a warm spring producing small, compact clusters and berries. Warm and dry weather continued through harvest resulting in compact, healthy clusters with thick skins and an almost perfect balance of tannins and acidity.
