Aromas of bright red cherry and strawberry with hints of earth, spices and toasty oak. An explosion of red fruit including strawberry, cherry and raspberry welcome the palate, finishing with refined tannins and a soft mouthfeel.
About the Wine
Our vineyards planted in the Santa Lucia Highlands experience a long and dry growing season that results in wines with remarkable depth, complexity and ripe fruit flavors. Our SLH vineyards – Lone Oak, Doctor’s, Smith and Hook– are planted on a narrow bench at elevations ranging from 200 to 1,200 feet above sea level. Here, plentiful sun and well-drained soils aid concentration
and flavor development
After the fruit has been carefully picked and sorted, it is fermented in open top stainless steel tanks. We then age this Pinot Noir for up to 11 months in a selection of small, 60-gallon French oak barrels. When the wine is ready to be blended, our winemaker selects only those barrels that exemplify the aromas and flavors of the Santa Lucia Highlands.
