This wine is a combination of pommard and 2A clones. The grapes were fermented in open-top fermenters and held for 32 days including extended maceration. 25% whole cluster fruit was employed. Gently pressed directly to barrel, the wine aged in French oak for 22 months. 10 percent new barrels were used.
Satisfaction is an aromatic and feminine-style Pinot that is fruit-driven with notes of wild strawberry compote with rhubarb, caramel and tarragon with hints of cardamom.
