2009 Carr Pinot Noir
Sta. Rita Hills
Kessler-Haak Vineyard was planted in 2005. The vineyard is planted with twenty six acres of Pinot Noir and three acres of Chardonnay. The harvest of 2009 was only 1.5 tons to the acre with just eighteen of tiniest most beautiful clusters on each vine. The wine was aged twelve months in French oak barrels and has a dark black cherry color with aromas of rhubarb pie, blackberry jam and a smooth, long finish.
