pH 3.72  Alc. 14.93%   Our goal was to create a French-style Pinot Noir using our Northwest fruit.  We don’t normally irrigate our vines, but we did attempt to mimic the rainfall in the region of Chatequmeillant, France for this particular wine.  French wines from this area tend to be lighter, easy drinking wines without heavy fruit.  The French yeast which we sourced for this wine is recommended for long-term aging, so this wine should improve with time, probably peaking in around 2022.  It is delicious now and one of our favorites from 2016. 


So why is it called Cease and Desist?  We really can't tell you here but will be happy to next time you stop in for wine tasting.
