Made using grapes from a prized single vineyard in the Central Coast’s Cienega Valley AVA, this Vin Gris of Pinot Noir displays tantalizing layers of grapefruit, guava, wild strawberry and rose petals. On the palate, bright acidity adds poise and purity to the vibrant citrus, berry and tropical flavors as they glide to a long, juicy finish.
After a cool winter, the 2020 growing season began with spring rains that replenished our soils on Mt. Harlan and set the stage for an excellent vintage. After a late-March budbreak, we enjoyed temperate, sunny days and cool nights throughout spring and summer, allowing the grapes to slowly ripen, while preserving the bright natural acids that we prize. With no significant heat events, the 2020 vintage produced age-worthy wines with enticing aromatics, lovely freshness and purity, and beautifully delineated varietal flavors.
