12 East 12

The 2014 12 East 12 Pinot Noir is a joint project between Chapter 24 Vineyards and the iconic Gotham Bar and Grill in NYC. With a palette of vineyards to work with and a collaboration from Gotham’s beverage director, Liger-Belair assembled a style of wine to delight the savvy diner and skillfully compliment Alfred Portale’s menu. Bright notes of cherry harmonize with blue fruit undertones and intertwine to leave a lingering, elegant finish.

From August 30th to October 20th grapes were harvested from 5 vineyards (Croft, Johan, Carabella, Muska, and Phelps Creek) and brought to the winery then fully de-stemmed. Wild indigenous yeast took 24 days to change the whole berry infusion into wine. The berries were then pressed lightly in our manually controlled basket press and left to age for 12 months in 33% new oak barrels from Seguin Moreau and Francois Frères.
