About the Wine

Tasting Notes:

Named after Victoria’s daughter and Colene’s granddaughter, Adriane is an estate cuvée composed of specifically selected barrels that possess deep, concentrated flavors and a persistent finish. The aromas are focused and complex, with a range of red and dark red fruit and sweet spice. On the palate, there is an juicy, rich core of dark fruit, and nuanced hints of spice that end in a well rounded, supple finish. Age worthy and well balanced, Adriane is structured to gain complexity and interest over the next eight to twelve years in your cellar.

Wine Spectator 
Sleek and structured, with refined cherry, stony mineral and spiced tea flavors that take on polished tannins toward the finish. Drink now through 2024. 91 Points
 
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 
The 2015 Pinot Noir Adriane is pale to medium ruby-purple with a nose of cardamom, tilled earth and potpourri over black cherries and berries. Medium-bodied, it has a good concentration of black fruits and spices in the mouth, with a soft frame of grainy tannins and good freshness to lift the earthy finish. 91 Points

Winemaking:

Our earliest vintage to date, we harvested between September 12th and the 21st. The fruit was 100% destemmed into small stainless steel tanks and began with a 4-5 day cold soak. Following this, tanks are gently warmed, and fermentation by indigenous yeast begins and proceeds for 10 - 14 days.

During primary fermentation, the tanks are gently punched down by hand twice daily.  Once fermentation is complete, we allow for 5 - 7 days of extended maceration in tank before we drain the tanks and press the skins and seeds very gently to procure the remaining juice. Both the free run juice and pressed juice then go directly to barrel without settling. After 11 months in French oak — 40% new; 40% 1-year old; 20% 2-year old—the wine is then blended and bottled.

Clonal composition: 70% Dijon 667, 30% Wadenswil
