Viticulture

The 2018 Central CoastPinotNoir is largeley a blend of Mission Ranch (Arroyo seco) and Cedar Lane (arroyo seco) with a bitof the Brosseau Vineyard (Chalone) and the TomRitchie Vineyard (Sonoma Coast). As always, the wine is largely Pommard Clone, butalso 2A, and some Dijon 115 and 777 for fruitand jamminess.

Vinification

The various lots were harvested in the 22 Brix range, and fermented whole berry. The primary fermentation was uninoculated and the Malolactic Fermentation was spontaneous. We did not rack keeping the wine on the lees with occasional batonage until bottling to round out the mouthfeel.

Aging

The wine was aged in 2-6 year old French oak barrels for 9 months.

Tasting Note

The Folk Machine PinotNoir is always fairly lightweightand lightin color with relaxed tan¬nins and mediumacid. 2018 is consistentwith the pastfew vintages and with whatwe expectfromthis wine. Itis a very lively and an easy wine to serve with mostfoods. Keepexpecting a fun Pinotthatis elegant, pretty, and drinkable. Though lightin color due to no attemptto extractor over manipulate, the wine does notlack for flavor or body, butrather shows the silky more subtle side of the variety.
