This wine boasts a palatial core of blackberry pie, cherry cola, tobacco leaves, and violet aromas. The fresh palate showcases ripe currant, pomegranate, and cocoa shavings, offering a subtle yet structured body. The harmonious combination of flavors and structured tannins creates a melodic wine experience.
Clusters were hand harvested at night to ensure gentle processing of cool fruit. At the winery, the grapes were hand sorted, destemmed, and 10% of fruit was left "whole cluster" for complexity. The fruit was fermented in small open top bins with a blend of natural and cultured yeasts. Twice daily hand punch downs continued the extraction process throughout fermentation.The final blend consists of the winemaker's selection of the best barrels.
FRUIT SOURCE SUACCI VINEYARD
Suacci Vineyard is a 6.5-acre vineyard planted on south facing slopes of the Sebastopol Hills in the known Blucher Valley. In this especially cool pocket of the Russian River Valley AVA, there are short windows of heat in the midday, followed by ocean breezes which flow through the Petaluma Gap. With low yields and tiny “grenade” clusters, this vineyard consistently produces Pinot Noir with intense, complex flavors and pronounced acidity.
The 2014 vintage is celebrated for its exceptional quality, marking a historical milestone. Despite enduring the third consecutive year of drought and a mild spring, the vines started to flower in May, signaling an early harvest. The growing season enjoyed ideal weather conditions, leading to the development of ripe and balanced fruit.
Bailarín Cellars was created in 2014 by a collective of family and friends, each following their respective passions. Together, we focus on producing small lots of handcrafted wines from unique vineyard sources. We are proud to share the fruits of our labor and love with you.
