Mostly sourced from vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley, this vibrant Pinot Noir is a product of the third year of drought in California. Soils were well-drained, devigorating ancient sand dunes that dominate the area. Bright ruby red in color, this Pinot Noir opens with fresh raspberry, black cherry and strawberry aromas filling the nose. On the palate, the strawberry comes to the forefront and is complimented with light cocoa overtones.
This 2014 Pinot Noir is medium-bodied with powder-fine tannins and a bright, lively acidity. Pair with a poached salmon, charcuterie, ham and other cold meats. Especially good with patés, terrines, most goat cheeses and chocolate-covered strawberries. Aged 12 months in neutral French and American Oak. Drink now until 2020.
