Ask a question about this product

The 1998 Nichols Pinot Noir is ruby red. It is full bodied with a silky mouth feel. Also, it has concentrated fruit with rich deep flavors such as raspberry, cherry, plum, cedar, toast, smoke, spices (clove), caramel and vanilla. It is complex and well balanced with extreme depth and has a long finish.

Fermentation
It is produced in a unique style, 1/3 whole cluster berry fermented in small open top fermenters to facilitate maximum flavor and color extraction. The cap is punched down several times a day over a period of 7 to 10 days.

Barrel Age
The Pinot Noir is aged in 100% French Oak from the Allier, Never and Troncais Forest for twelve (12) months. The wine is further aged for an additional 12 months in the bottle. Aging in the bottle allows the wine to rest and round out its natural fruit flavor and aromatic attribute.

Central Coast Wine Region; Monterey County, Santa Lucia Highlands Appellation
Pisoni Vineyard lies in the Santa Lucia Highlands which is located at the base of the Santa Lucia Mountains in Monterey County. Warm days, good for fruit development and ripening, are countered by cool nights and mornings. Cool nights allow the vines to shut down and rest.
The vineyard was propagated from cutting from one of the highest regarded vineyards in Burgundy.
