Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Winemaker Notes
Made from a handful of the finest vineyards on the Central Coast, this Pinot Noir displays alluring aromas of ripe black cherry, raspberry, sandalwood and orange zest. On palate the flavors turn dark and luxurious, with layers of blackberry jam and cassis gliding across supple tannins to a lingering cedar and spice finish.
The quality of the 2018 growing season on California’s Central Coast was fantastic. After warm early spring weather led to an early budbreak, the temperatures cooled in late-spring, followed by sunny days with moderate temperatures throughout the summer. This provided us with some of the longest hangtimes we have ever seen in a few of our Central Coast vineyards, which resulted in beautifully ripe flavors overall. At the same time, the temperate weather allowed the fruit to retain ideal acidity, yielding vibrant and complex wines, with excellent structure and alluring flavors.

Nuanced and enticing with a velvety structural softness and precise fruit. Perfumed nose of raspberries, cherries, and sandalwood. Delicious, polished palate where an alluring, suave structure caresses the tastebuds delivering a smooth raspberry and dark cherry cascade. Not overblown, alcoholic or top heavy. Instead there’s a discrete fruitiness, ending on a refreshing spicy note in the long, lush finish. A really stylish and nice Pinot Noir. 17p
