Sheldon 2010 Pinot Noir, Roma's Vyd., Anderson Valley
Sheldon is a “Micro-Winery” crafting only single vineyard designate wines. Grapes are all sustainably farmed, hand harvested and basket pressed. Many small lots are hand bottled and hand labeled. A few special vineyards only yield enough for a single barrel (just 25 cases). The Sheldon’s have worked hard to remain true to their dream. Their winery is a labor of love. They apply a minimalist approach to winemaking. After harvesting and sorting clusters by hand, fermentation goes along slowly and naturally in small open top fermenters. Punch downs, of the fermenting grapes, are done by hand many times a day. They gently press using the 3/4 ton basket press. The new wine is aged in primarily neutral French Oak, allowing the flavors of the vineyard and vines to take center stage. The wines are gravity racked according to lunar cycles, until being sent to bottle unfiltered and unfined. Roma's Vineyard is situated at 1,800 feet elevation at the deep end of the Anderson Valley; an ideal cool climate for Pinot Noir. The vineyard is planted with a Pommard clone. The wine was aged in two and three-year-old French oak. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 94 points saying "An ebullient, gorgeous example of cool-climate Pinot Noir from an 1,800-feet elevation vineyard at the north end of the Anderson Valley. Sheldon’s Roma is classic in its layers of nuanced cherry, raspberry, spice and acidity. Focused and intensely delicious."
