2014 Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir
Our final Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir is our 2014. When August West started in 2002, we produced only one wine, and that was Rosella's Pinot. We've been lucky to have worked with Rosella's for 13 vintages, it's quite a vineyard.
The 2014 August West Rosella's Pinot is made up of two clones, Dijon 113 and the Pisoni selection. We harvested the 113 on September 3, the earliest ever for us at Rosella's. The Pisoni came in two weeks later on September 16, so not only was it the earliest we ever started the Pinot harvest, it's also the earliest we ever finished it at Rosella's.
Similar in style to the 2010 Rosella's Pinot, the 2014 will be one that not only drinks well early, it is also a candidate for drinking in the long-term. We recommend drinking this anytime between 2016 and 2024.
