The Hug 2015 Pinot Noir comes from the Rancho Ontiveros Vineyard, located at the southernmost side of the Santa Maria Valley reaching elevations of over 700 feet. Here, the vines and grapes are stressed, which ironically provides a positive effect on the wine, with concentrated fruit flavors. This Pinot Noir delivers a profile of fine leather, dark berries, sweet tobacco leaf, black tea, and classic forest floor aromas. The palate offers similar flavors with nice body and structure with fine tannins.
