Pinot Noir 2013
Central Coast, California
Upon arriving at the winery, the grapes are destemmed, crushed and fermented warm at about 85 degrees Fahrenheit in a stainless steel fermenter. At dryness, the wine is pressed then racked cleanly for aging. For aging, 20% of the blend is aged on French oak for 14 months and the balance is aged in stainless steel to accentuate the fruit forward component of this wine.
Our Pinot Noir has a silky and lush texture with raspberry aromas that lead into bright cherry and red fruit flavors. The finish is long and smooth, with delicate notes of vanilla and toast. It is a wine that pairs deliciously with roast chicken, lamb, pork, tuna and mild sausages.
