From Balletto Winemaker Anthony Beckman and His Wife Alissa: 

"The 2014 CRUESS pinot noir from the Sonoma Coast is graceful, unique and vibrant. This sexy pinot is dark and earthy, yet delicate and fresh. The mouth feel is dramatic with a lasting finish and perfect structure. It’s hard to describe and ever-changing...in a good way. There are notes of black tea, baking spices and juicy cherry. We believe it will age beautifully, but can’t wait to open it now. It’s both a challenge and a risk to make a serious wine that is still lighthearted and enjoyable to drink. The grapes are from Saltonstall Vineyard, which is tucked down into a little valley in the cold and foggy hills west of Petaluma. It’s farmed impeccably and the resulting fruit is an amazing expression of the Sonoma Coast." 

Winemaking:

"Grapes were hand harvested at night and fermented with 30 percent whole cluster to add tannins, mellow acids and add distinct aromatics. We cold soaked the grapes for four days, removed the cooling and let the must begin fermentation without adding any commercial yeast. The grapes sat for an additional six days before the indigenous fermentation kicked off. The native fermentation allows for extra soak time without alcohol and high temperatures and allows for secondary yeasts to add flavor and aromas before the main fermentation begins. The wine came off skins 21 days after harvest. Press wine was not included in the final blend."
