Head High Pinot Noir 18
2018 was one of those magical years. With a mild spring, the early growing season plodded along at a relatively normal pace. Once the berries set, they knew they had a healthy, full crop. So full, in fact, they did a few fruit-thinning passes to reduce the load on the vines. Even with this, they were happy to see an above-average harvest with superb quality. They started picking in earnest after Labor Day with cool, fall weather that allowed them to transfer the grapes at a calm and measured pace. All in all, 2018 will go down as a year to remember, creating a wine of true depth and power.
