The Vintage

The 2011 vintage represents Fulcrum’s 6th and one that we consider among our best. Between thePost Fulcrum Wines Update excellent harvest conditions and our commitment to improving our work in the winery, we were able to capture our elegant yet rich style of Pinot Noir.

The 2011 growing season was another cool one in the vineyards, but slightly warmer than 2010. We had the luxury to pick all of our grapes when we wanted. Rain finally came on October 3rd and that was the last day we were picking the Wildcat Mountain Vineyard, just in the nick of time. For elegant Pinot Noir the season was spot on.

2011 was hard for other wineries that have to wait until later in October or November to pick because they have late-ripening varietals. We have a lot of friends that make Napa Cabernet so we know it was not an easy harvest for many with tractors stuck in the mud.

Yes Pinot Noir is hard to grow, but as an early-ripening varietal it had it’s advantages in 2011.
