Winery Tasting Notes: “This wine is a true testament to Thomas’ non-interventionist style that allows the vintage to shine through first and foremost. The mild and even weather in 2021, along with the cool Occidental site, allows for extended hang time. Picked at a moderate 23.4 Brix on September 19, the vineyard is meticulously farmed, and the fruit arrived in perfect condition. Fermentation with 30% whole cluster made for a beautifully perfumed, aromatic Pinot Noir. Offering scents of Christmas spice, cherry, cranberry, and some forest floor, the wine’s balance really shines through to a long detailed finish. More Burgundian than 2018 and 2019, this has the ethereal quality we love in Pinot Noir. We are thrilled to work with the Valdez Family and this historical site for many “Generations” to come.”
