It takes a tight rein to ride a headstrong young horse that loves to run. So it was with guiding Brick House Pinot Noir fermentations in 2021. All the sunshine and the warmth of the vintage packed every grape with more than enough of what it takes to make great wine. Thus, an exercise in restraint: picking early to preserve acidity, gentle pump overs instead of rigorous punch downs and then a careful selection of barrels to achieve a “Select” bottling of near perfect balance. Dark, brooding color, strawberry and crushed cranberry notes all with alcohol under 12.5%. We’re sure you’ll enjoy the ride!
