Vintage: 2017

Appellation: Santa Lucia Highlands, CA

Varietal: Pinot Noir

The fog is an essential ingredient in this delicious Pinot Noir. The intrusion of the marine layer over the California coast provides significantly cooler air temperatures, enabling the grapes to sustain balancing natural acidity and perfect fruit ripeness.

The ample sun and controlled temperatures make it easy for winemakers to pick at the perfect moment when ripeness is optimal. This ideal environment delivers a Pinot Noir that dances on the tongue.

These ideal growing conditions deliver a wine highlighted by ripe fruit, herbal notes, and perfect acidity. Just the right amount of sunlight and cool evening temperatures deliver a Pinot Noir that is sure to please your palate.

Pairs Well With
