Description 

J Vineyards And Winery
The long, cool growing season in the Russian River Valley ripens this delicate, and often finicky, grape to perfection. At J Vineyards ' Winery, all of our vineyards are Certified Sustainable and we employ vineyard management and winemaking techniques that minimally interact with the fruit so the purest expression shows in the final blend.

Throughout fall's harvest, as each row reaches optimum ripeness, we hand-pick clusters during cool nighttime hours when grapes are at their most balanced. Careful hand-sorting in the winery ensures high quality, and then Pinot Noir grapes undergo three to five days of cold soaking to enhance fruit characters prior to fermentation. Both open- and closed-top fermentation tanks are utilized and we punch down the naturally occurring grape skin and seed 'cap' several times per day to control tannins and harshness while extracting precise color.

Gentle gravity-flow racking for all our wines further prevents the extraction of harsh tannins, and malolactic fermentation occurs in oak barrels. Our Pinot Noir ages nine to eleven months in 100% French oak barrels that have varying degrees of toast based on winemaking's specifications for that offering. Minimal fining retains pure fruit expression before the wine is bottled for your enjoyment.

Bottle Size: .750
