Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
An early map by a resident of Bannockburn gave a small parcel of land the name ‘Mysterious Diggings’. A vineyard of extreme beauty, high in the hills, the Diggings vineyard has sun-drenched, rocky terraces with soils heavy in native schist. The fragrance and dark cherry flavors of the Diggings Pinot Noir are created by these unique vineyard soils.
The grapes were fermented (with a majority of native yeasts) with 5% as whole cluster at a relatively cool temperature with 18 days total time on the skins. The pressed wine was settled over night then racked to age in older French oak barriques (most of them 4 year old, a little of 3 year old and 2 year old) for texture. Coarse filtered.
This delicious Pinot Noir is both very approachable and very sophisticated. The vibrant wine has a bright garnet color with blackberries, lavender and wild thyme on the nose. The palate is beautifully layered with forest fruit flavors, silky tannins and vibrant acidity. It is long and luxurious in the mouth and perfect both as a wine for its own sake, and with a wide spectrum of foods - pork , salmon, venison as well as those essentials of life always made better by Pinot Noir - pizza and pasta.
