Notes from Violin:
"Picked on Dennis’ birthday, the 30th of September, Sojeau Pinot noir brought us the ultimate in balanced chemistry and concentration. Our yields were down almost 20% from 2018, but the cool finish to harvest meant we hit our mark perfectly with respect to ripeness. I fermented two lots, the larger of the two with 18% as whole cluster, and a “sans stems” lot of 100% destemmed berries. The final blend came from three barrels of the 18% whole cluster lot and one barrel from the all destemmed lot, racked in early January after almost 16 total months in oak, 25% new, and bottled on the 20th of the month with the other 19s."
