Domaine de la Cote Memorious Pinot Noir

The vineyard is named after the experimental seedlings Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman started growing in 2007. Melissa, Sashi’s wife, collected and cleaned over 10,000 grape seeds that were eventually germinated and planted in the one acre below the Memorious vineyard. As these seedlings have grown they have revealed the genetic history of Pinot Noir – white, red and pink grapes can be found among the individual seedlings! These seedlings represent the “memories of Pinot Noir,” the rich and mysterious ancestry of a wine grape that is more than 2000 years old. They fermented the wine with 50% whole bunches in large concrete tanks. The high-toned red fruit aromas counter-balance the spicy and earthy texture. The wine has a suave texture and is the normally the earthiest of their wines.
