FIRST BORN — Sequitur's 2014 Pinot Noir produced an exceptional wine that Carey and I are very proud of.
There seems to be a strong correlation between a good tomato year and a good grape year. 2014 was both. An early warm spring gave us a very nice flowering that ensured uniform ripeness with good yields. A relatively dry summer with moderate temperatures produced healthy grape skins.
In September, the right amount of rain at the right time of grape maturity gave the vines the perfect conditions for great healthy thick skinned pinot noir, which in turn produced great wine.
