Notes on blending the Casteel Pinot Noir
 
Over the past twenty years Bethel Heights has been known for crafting limited bottlings of distinctive vineyard and block designated Pinot noir wines. In 2002 we took a new path and produced our first Casteel Reserve Pinot Noir, a blend of barrels from several different blocks, selected to express the epitome of that particular vintage. This is the only Bethel Heights Pinot noir that carries our family name rather than a place name, which gives us considerable poetic license to select our favorite barrels from each vintage.
 
Each block in our estate vineyard has its own character. Each vintage as we taste through the vineyard we begin to forecast long before harvest which blocks are going to compose this wine: the blocks that will lend structure for aging and the core of fruits and earth that will give the wine a soul.
 
In 2014 we selected 17 barrels, from two different blocks at Bethel Heights.  This extraordinary vintage begged for barrel time. We waited fourteen months to bottle. Then we blended together just enough of each to reach a balance, and moved the wine into bottle, out of our lives and into yours.
