Mimi’s Mind 2019 has stunning lift and slowly unveiling layers of flavor, that evolve and deepen with age. It reveals a complex of herbs, floral notes of rose and violet, and has a solid structure under- pinned by the inclusion of some whole cluster fruit. This is the roundest textured vintage of Mimi’s Mind due to lower yields, gentle handling, and harmonious weather in 2019.
Mimi Casteel’s vineyard is a role model for regenerative farming, with thoughtful vineyard practices to improve the environment around and beyond her farm.  It’s an impressive take on biodynamic and organic principles combined with science. 2019 Mimi’s Mind selection is 40% PN667 and the remainder classic Pommard Clone.
Due to the condition of stems in 2019, Thomas decided to include only 8% whole cluster fruit. The rest of the fruit is sorted, 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 22% new oak and the rest neutral oak barriques.
2019 Vintage
Winter was again a little dry. Spring rain accumulation helped avoid another drought year providing the vines with water to sustain growth and return to health after the severe drought of 2018. Harvest proceeded with fruit in excellent condition, though there were some rain events that had to be watched.
