Starfish Pinot Noir

Starfish Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2009

2009 was one of the very best vintages in Russian River Valley history. Conditions were perfect: Mild with morning fog burning off at noon. We picked from our various vineyards on September 14th and September 18th at perfect ripeness. Full intense flavor, bright crisp natural acidity highlight this wonderful vintage.

The 2009 Starfish Pinot Noir is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. Grapes were destemmed, not crushed, directly into small open top fermenters and punched down by hand. 10% whole clusters were added to the bottom of the tank. The must was cold soaked for 48 hours. After 14 days of fermentation the wine was pressed with a small basket press, settled and then racked to French oak barrels. In August the wine was blended and bottled.
