Our California Pinot Noir is a medium bodied wine which displays aromas of ripe plum, violets and cocoa powder. On the palate, the Pinot offers luscious flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and floral notes with a touch of spice. The integrated bright acidity helps provide a lengthy finish.
Grapes from sites throughout Central Coast and the North Coast were harvested at optimal maturity, then de-stemmed and gently placed into open-top stainless steel fermenters and cold soaked for three days prior to initiating fermentation. During fermentation, each tank is punched down two to three times per day. The fermented wine then was racked to oak for aging. During the aging process the wine lots were tasted throughout and blended back together just before bottling.
