2016 Steve's Reserve Pinot Noir

2016 Steve's Reserve Pinot Noir
2016 Steve's Reserve Pinot Noir

Owner Steve Hendricks selected six of his favorite barrels, creating 150 cases of Steve’s Reserve. A big bold approach, generous mouth filling red fruit flavors, with beautifully integrated oak, and a lingering finish that highlights the spiciness of the Laurelwood soil.

Tasting notes

Steve’s is a powerful wine that harnesses the elegance and finesse of selected newer oak barrels from throughout the cellar.  Predominanatly chosen from Ruby Vineyard's pommard clone, incorporating Timbale and Thyme. Newer oak can help enhance and fill in textural spaces of a wine. While oak will not make a wine age worthy—that is entirely dependent on the quality of the starting material in the vineyard and ensuing wine—it can certainly lend more phenolic structure which in turn should help a wine age gracefully. Sometimes wine is about embracing Dionysian hedonism. Big, rich, powerful wines can be quite enjoyable, they please our senses, and many consumers gravitate towards this style.
