Description 

Ransom Jigsaw Pinot Noir
VINIFICATION:
The fruit is 100% destemmed with a high percentage of whole berries to mainly 1.5 ton fermenters. Cold soak lengths of an average of four days ensure gentle yet thorough extraction of color and flavor. The small lots are fermented with BRG, Premier Cuvee, BGY, and wild yeasts for an average of seven days, and hand punched two to three times daily. The wine is aged ten months before being blended, filtered, and bottled.
VINTAGE NOTES:
2013 was an excellent vintage, marked by a sunny and mild growing season. A warm spring allowed for an early bud break, and we enjoyed a beautiful summer with warm weather and very little rain. A period of rain in late September prolonged what had promised to be a hot, truncated growing season. A subsequent period of cool, dry weather through October allowed the grapes additional hang time, and harvest began in earnest in early October. Though the late rains rattled everyone's nerves, the grapes weathered them in good condition and benefited from the additional hang time. The 2013 vintage is characterized by balance, with moderate alcohol and acidity levels allowing an elegant expression of the rich, ripe flavors gleaned from the warm summer.
OUR IMPRESSIONS:
The unique pieces of the Willamette Valley's distinctive terroir fit seamlessly together in the 2013 Jigsaw Pinot Noir. A focused aromatic entry with notes of black cherry and sarsaparilla is complemented by a rich garnet hue in the glass. On the palate, lush flavors of plum and pie spice are interwoven with an elegant vein of minerality in a deft balance. Fine, silken tannins and a hint of demerara sugar give weight and fullness to a savory mid-palate. The wine finishes long and supple with flavors of wild iris and sweet earth. Ready to drink now, with the finesse and restraint to cellar.
