Made using grapes from a prized single vineyard in the Central Coast’s Cienega Valley AVA, this Vin Gris of Pinot Noir offers dazzling layers of strawberry, rhubarb, cranberry and pomegranate, along with hints of fresh-cut grass and orange zest that linger on the vivacious 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.
