Casa Marin Pinot Noir 2013

Casa Marin Pinot Noir 2013

Casa Marín produces four different Pinot Noirs from different blocks within our vineyards in Lo Abarca. The different soils, clones, and vinification methods result in four completely different Pinot Noirs. Pinot Noir Litoral is our second wine in the Pinot line. It is harvested 2 to 3 weeks later than the Cartagena Pinot Noir as we are looking for a fuller bodied and complex Pinot Noir. Punch downs are done three times a day for 10 days in order to gain more structure, color, and flavors out of the skins. The wine is fermented with its natural yeast and then aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, of which 20 percent are new barrels. This is a serious Pinot Noir, with aromas of bright cherry, red berry, and hints of cool climate cranberry framed in whips of smoky peat hearth fire. Flavors are bright, with a firm acid structure supporting the same fruit tones perceptible in the aroma. Finish lingers with long, late acid backbone carrying the red berry late into the aftertaste.

Ageing potential 10 years.
