Blending the 2013

In September, we worked the final blend of the Henricsson Reserve. We tasted all 12 barrels numerous times and settled on 5 that we felt would be interesting to include in the final blend. We took more samples and started blending and seeing how different barrels worked together.

On September 17, we brought samples over to some friend’s house and three couples, all with substantial experience with Pinot, sat down to agree on the final blend. After a lot of discussions and arm wrestling, we agreed on using 4 different barrels in proportions of 5% – 40% each. We felt pretty good about the result and are very excited to see how this wine will develop with age.

The bottling was done, unfiltered and unfined in the first week of October 2015. 25 cases in total.
