Vineyard Notes
The 2018 growing season started after abundant February rains, followed by a mild spring and early summer. Both bud break and flowering occurred a bit late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating plentiful and even fruit set. Summer brought generous sun during the day and cooler marine influences at night, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The relatively mild summer followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat created near-ideal conditions for the fruit to accumulate flavor complexity.
Production Notes
Rolando’s goal is to create a Pinot so big and bold it can pair with a steak. We strive for low yields in the vineyard and then bleed the juice from the skin to extract the purest and richest flavors.
Tasting Notes
The Esmeralda pinot displays a New World style nose, dense with aromas of red raspberry, strawberry, and pomegranate, along with hints of rainforest and clean clay. On the palette her Old-World roots show with layers of succulent red fruit, bright cherry, rich raspberry accompanied by refreshing acidity and a long, lingering finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Bacon wrapped pork loin with roasted cherry sauce and ultra-creamy whipped potatoes are a dream match for Esmeralda. Cheese: A nutty Gruyère or Comté pair wonderfully with Pinot Noir.
