2013 BVE Club Elite Pinot Noir

2013 BVE Club Elite Pinot Noir
2013 BVE Club Elite Pinot Noir

(Wine Club exclusive.) This wine is prepared from selected barrels and selected blocks, chosen for their expressive character. Gentle extraction gives this young wine great delicacy, with a lovely, floral nose, almost reminiscent of the rosés but with the warm, full flavor of a red pinot noir. Ready to drink right now, with pretty red fruit, hints of Pinot Noir earthiness, silky tannins and tremendous balance.  Something special happens when a wine shows structure but also minerality, and blends soft but firm tannins with fresh acidity, and that’s the kind of complexity the BVE Club Elite offers.

Serve this with lighter meat: simple roast chicken, or grilled salmon on a cedar plank with fresh herbs.

Robert Brittan left Stags’ Leap Winery in Napa after 16 years as Winemaker and Estate Manager to fulfill his dream of making Pinot Noir and Syrah from unique sites in cooler climates. His winemaking career began in his dorm room at Oregon State University, where he was a physics and philosophy major.

Being both geeky and broke, he soon realized that alcohol was an attractant to co-eds, so he began his career in fermentation sciences in order to get a date. He ultimately completed his education at UC Davis and moved to Napa Valley, where he made wines for Far Niente, Saint Andrews and Stags’ Leap Winery.

With over 40 years of experience growing grapes and making wine, he brings a significant amount of viticultural and winemaking knowledge to Brittan Vineyards. He has always had a passion for Pinot Noir, and hopes that with the fruit from the Brittan estate vineyard in the foothills of the Coastal Range, he can bring a new voice to the McMinnville AVA, and help form the style and definition of Pinot Noir from this recently designated winegrowing region.
