Crushed and broken, we‘ve all been there. Yet, remember the words of Nietzsche; "that which doesn't kill us, makes us stronger." A salute to those who have picked up the pieces and persevered. In our case, we picked up the pieces and fermented them. Our 30% whole cluster lot was crushed, broken and vinified with the rachis and lateral stems intact. This violet-ruby Pinot Noir showcases a massive strawberry preserve mid-palate along with caramelized rhubarb, rounded tannins and toe-curling cardamon notes. The whole cluster addition brings texture and mouthfeel to the wine with a ringing crescendo finish. This bottle is sure to grant endorphins shore leave to your brain. Crushed and broken now has a silver lining.
