2010 La Cuillere "Member's Reserve" Pinot Noir
The 2010 growing season started with bud break around early April. The spring turned out to be colder and wetter than average, even though the year had started out much warmer and dryer than normal from January to March. April through June was exceptionally cold and wet and peppered with hail storms resulting in some damage. Starting in early July, the temperature rose to almost normal for a cool and relatively dry summer. The fruit set was very light following bloom the first two weeks of July. The clusters were small with some shot-berries (millerandage). Veraison started in early to mid-September, and harvest at Torii Mor was October 16th through 30th.
