The maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean creates morning fog and afternoon winds, which is an ideal climate combination for the production of world-class Pinot Noir. This ‘stream of winds’ directly affects the Loma Vista and Sarmento Vineyards, from which the 2013 ‘Fog King Block’ Pinot Noir is from and takes its name. The estate Loma Vista Vineyard is nestled in Arroyo Seco, while the estate Sarmento Vineyard is located in the Santa Lucia Highlands, both calling the greater Monterey County AVA home.
Traditional winemaking techniques were used to preserve the individual flavors (terroir) of each parcel of land. The Windstream 2013 ‘Fog King Block’ Pinot Noir is a rich and full-bodied wine with aromas of red berries, clove, and oak spice and ripe flavors of black cherry and raspberry. The mouthfeel is soft and round with a lingering finish.
