The goal for this wine is to capture the vibrancy, energy and rare, chiseled red fruit quality that this site is capable of producing. The fruit is picked in multiple passes at the early edge of ripeness to produce a firmly structured wine distinguished by its complexity and intensity rather than any dimension of weight. During fermentation temperatures are kept lower and intact whole berries preserved as much as possible in order to capture the high-toned, lifted aromatics and saline essence that are the hallmarks of this site. This gives the Bodega Headlands Pinot Noir the vivid aromatics, along with a measure of elegance and grace. High-pitched aromas of red raspberry, crushed stone, and rose petal characterise the nose. A pure, crystalline wine that features a stunning combination of precision, finesse, and razor-edged salinity. This is a beautifully layered and balanced wine that finishes with bright red fruit and floral intensity.
