In many years, Marc has crafted a Barrel Select version of our Monopole Pinot Noir. However, he has not made a barrel select Pinot since 2009! Only vintages of supreme quality with enough fruit from our small 15-acre estate secure a decision to create a Barrel Select. With 2014 being the ‘vintage of the decade,’ he couldn’t resist tasting through and selecting the best barrels to bottle as our Gold label Barrel Select.
Like our 2014 Monopole, the Barrel Select has a nose of cherry & fresh berry, but boasts more cedar, vanilla and plum on the nose. Bigger on the palate with a defined, velvet structure, the Gold has more notes of nutmeg and baking spice with a wholly smooth, silky finish.
