2017 Hyland Founders Selection Pinot Noir

Each year our winemakers set out to make a wine that is quintessential Hyland, and the truest expression of that vintage.  The final blend may change each year to reflect season, but the spirit of the wine stays consistent.  Using our oldest and best performing blocks, a higher percentage of whole cluster fermentation, and a little more TLC, craft a highlight to the annual production.  Make a wine that expresses the rich textures, powerful flavors, and long term ageability of the renowned terroir of the Hyland Vineyard.

93 pts - A light and lacy nose with graphite, woody spices and dried red cherries, leading to a palate that has a smooth, sleek feel with ripe-cherry flavors, framed in smooth, even tannins. Drink in the next five years. - James Suckling

93 pts - This is a lighter vintage for this reserve selection, with lower alcohol and more refinement. It's a well-balanced mix of cherry fruit with earthy compost. Streaks of cola and root beer run through the middle, and the tannins bring an astringent note of breakfast tea. The overall depth and complexity are among the best ever for this cuvée. - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast

91 pts - The 2017 Pinot Noir Founder's Selection has a medium ruby color and earthy aromas of tar, tree bark, oolong tea leaves and smoked meats with a core of wild blackberries and cranberries plus amaro hints. Light to medium-bodied with savory fruits and a firm frame, it has great freshness and a long, layered finish. - Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate
