2012 Kiser En Haut Pinot Noir 1.5L
The upper parcel of our flagship Kiser vineyard continues to produce some
of our most compelling and elegant Pinot Noir. With aromas of dark cherry,
violets and roses, the Kiser ‘En Haut’ maintains the finesse and grace of
previous vintages. The palate is nuanced with rich plum, white tea, and
chamomile with layers of dried leaves and crushed stone. Silky and seductive,
this is truly deserving of its reputation as one of our most sought-after Pinots.
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.
