Our 2011 Bar Lazy S Ranch is a beautiful expression of Clone 2A Pinot
Noir, known for its early ripening, intense color, and vibrant fruit flavors.
Expansive cherry compote flavors stain the palate. The viscous mouthfeel
of this wine really tempers the tone of the fruit, resulting in a beautifully
rich and rounded wine. This Pinot’s new world styling makes it a
versatile pairing for a wide range of dishes.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
A very cool season overall, the spring presented early rain and resulted in the delay of the 2011 growing season. Summer temperatures followed suit with a warm spell in August which helped with vine development and even ripening of the fruit. Due to cooler weather berry size was very small, creating fruit with incredible color, moderate tannins and great perfume with concentrated flavor. We hand harvested all of our blocks between October 4 and October 20, 2011. Acidities are higher overall but this wine is very fruit forward and beautifully balanced.
Production Notes
We harvest our grapes based on the ripeness of the tannins. The fruit was hand-picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard in the cool morning hours to preserve the aromatics. The clusters were then gently de-stemmed with no crushing. The most important step for the fruit is a cold-soaked in open-top fermenters for four days and then inoculated with yeast. Each tank was manually punched down daily throughout maceration. Upon completion of primary fermentation and maceration, the free-run wine was transferred to tank for settling. Next, the individual lots were racked in French oak barrels, 54% new, and aged for 17 months prior to bottling.
