For this spectacular Pinot Noir, Ray sourced his grapes from Mary’s Peak Vineyard and fermented them in a special “French Oak Tank”. The wine was then transferred to 50% new and 50% once used French oak barrels. These special oak barrels are from the Chitton Forrest, a small forest in the coolest area of Burgundy, France. What you get from age in these specific barrels is a tighter gain, elegant floral spice, and a finish of richness that produces perfect balance after aging for two years in them. Succession Cuvee Pinot Noir is an “Old Style” Pinot Noir, with aromas of raspberry and black cherry, earth tones and a floral finish. On your palate a delightful rush of the concentrated red fruit, with soft elegant tannin levels, and a lengthy smooth velvet finish that seems to go on forever.
