Marimar Estate ‘La Masia’ Pinot Noir

RM374.0

Nestled in the rolling hills of western Sonoma County, the Russian River/Green Valley appellation is a perfect micro-climate for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Only 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 50 miles north of San Francisco, the ‘Don Miguel’ Single vineyard site is influenced by the sea’s cooling breezes and drifting fog.

The organically-grown Don Miguel Vineyard – Named after the late patriarch of the Torres family, this sustainable vineyard is located in the Green Valley – the coolest, foggiest region of the Russian River, only ten miles from the Pacific. Planted in the European-style high density of over 2,000 vines/acre, the yields are low and labor intensive; but the vines live longer and the grapes acquire better balance and greater concentration, as well as more elegance and finesse.

Aged for over a year in French barrels, this beautiful Pinot Noir reflect the classic Russian River/Green Valley fruit: dark berries and a hint of orange peel. Luscious, vibrant nose of black cherry and ripe red fruits like Santa Rosa plums, with background notes of orange peel and clove. The firm, rich tannins promise a long life; this wine will continue to develop for another 10-15 years.

Description

Nestled in the rolling hills of western Sonoma County, the Russian River/Green Valley appellation is a perfect microclimate for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Only 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 50 miles north of San Francisco, the site is influenced by the sea’s cooling breezes and drifting fog. That is why Marimar Torres selected this privileged location to “export” the Torres family legacy of fine wines to California.

Marimar came to live in California in 1975. After two years of searching, she acquired the land and began planting the vineyard in 1986. Today there are 30 acres planted with Chardonnay and 30 with Pinot Noir. The wines are made entirely from estate-grown grapes. Named in honor of the late patriarch of the family, the vineyard is unique in California because it is totally European in style. The vines are trained very close to the ground on an open vertical trellis, following the slope of an east-facing hillside; the rootstocks are phylloxera resistant; and the planting density is 2000 vines per acre, four times more than is traditional in California. Such high density promotes root competition and diminishes vigor, naturally reducing the output per vine.
Yields are low and labor is intensive, but the vines live longer and produce grapes with greater concentration of flavors, more refined and elegant aromas, and better balance. To contribute complexity, Marimar did extensive research to select several clones of each varietal: See, Rued and Spring Mountain for Chardonnay; and Cristina 88, Swan, Pommard, Lee, Dijon 115 and Dijon 667 for Pinot Noir. Each clone brings different attributes to the final blend, resulting in wines with deep layers of flavor.
