The CRU 2011 'Appellations Series – Santa Maria Valley' Pinot Noir was produced from two of the region’s most coveted vineyards – the Sierra Madre Vineyard near the western edge of the Valley, and Garey Vineyard, located on the northern edge of the elevated Santa Maria mesa. Winemaker Ken Post blended multiple Pinot Noir clones from these two vineyard sites to bring extra layers of complexity to the wine. Dark cherry red in color, the nose is intriguing with notes of raspberry, strawberry, forest floor and soy sauce. The palate is smooth yet vibrant with blackberry, cranberry, tangerine and spice.
