Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
100% Pinot Noir

The Unbridled Righetti Ranch Pinot Noir is a boldly elegant California Pinot Noir. This Pinot starts with rich aromas of strawberry and vanilla. On the palate, flavors of cherry candies and cola are accented with subtle herbal notes of anise and basil. Bright acidity lends this wine to pair wonderfully mushroom raviolis with sage brown butter, or lamb ossobuco with gremolata.

Vineyard Notes
This 2011 Unbridled Pinot Noir comes from Righetti Ranch located in the heart of picturesque Edna Valley. Edna Valley is known for having one of the longest growing seasons in California. The mixture of volcanic and loamy soils gives it a richness and affinity for growing strong, but balanced grapevines. The proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides plenty of cool coastal air and fog, resulting in slow, even ripening and concentrated flavor development.
Winemaker Notes
The lots arrived to Wild Horse in the cool morning hours after night picking. Grapes were destemmed and then fermented in small open top tanks. The must was punched down 2 times per day during primary fermentation. Each lot spent at least 10 days on skins to maximize extraction and achieve softer tannins. After pressing, each lot was then racked once from tank into 100% French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and 14 months of aging. This particular lot was comprised of 35% new French oak, 35% once filled, and 30% twice filled.

An excellent, soft rich Pinot: other WH pinots are very good also, but my husband, friends, and I particularly enjoy the Righetti vintages!
