2021 Lingua Franca Mimi's Mind Pinot Noir

Add To Cart
SKU: 40009413-21

The 2021 Mimi’s Mind has a bright red fruit character with raspberry, strawberry, and citrus notes. It reveals a complex nose of herbs and rose petals, wearing its structure lightly, underpinned by the inclusion of some whole cluster fruit. This is the brightest vintage of Mimi’s Mind, gentle, delicate, and lyrical. Mimi Casteel’s vineyard has been a role model for regenerative farming, with thoughtful vineyard practices to improve the environment around and beyond her farm. We still name this cuvée in her honor. The 2021 Mimi’s Mind selection is 64% PN777 and the remainder classic Pommard Clone. 

Wine Profile
Production Notes
In 2021, 35% of the fruit from Mimi’s was fermented with whole clusters, almost equally for both clones. The rest of the fruit was sorted by hand and then machine, then destemmed gently so that only whole berries go into the fermenters for a more precise flavor profile. After fermentation with wild yeast, gentle pump overs and a few punch downs towards the end of fermentation, Mimi’s is aged in 23% new oak and the rest neutral oak barriques.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine will be excellent paired with poultry, such as rabbit braised with root vegetables and chanterelles, roast chicken with hedgehog mushroom, roasted lemon- thyme chicken, grilled quail seasoned with thyme and lemon, and a Pacific Northwest favorite plank-smoked salmon filet.
