The Reserve program has evolved from an every-so-often produced bottling to the mainstay of our production. This bottling allows us to accomplish two things that are very important to us as a winery. The first thing is that it allows us to use barrels from our vineyard designated sites that we think don't represent what we think that site's profile truly is. Sometimes that is based on vine age, clonal material or location within the site. This allows our vineyard designated wines to be true expressions of the site on a year in and year out basis. Secondly, it allows us to create a blended wine that has a degree of consistency to it each vintage that is of high-quality and will retail for $25. We are wine consumers just as we are winemakers and we understand the absolute necessity for good quality Pinot at more of an every day sort of price. The 2013 is exactly what we and hopefully you would hope for in this wine. It aptly details the sweet and succulent nature of the fruit in the 2013 vintage while giving enough structure to hold it all together but not so much so that the wine is not immensely enjoyable right now. 10% new barrel, 2,604 cases bottled.
