Santa Lucia Highlands, California
Complex aromas and flavors of cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, and strawberry are laced with notes of jasmine, sage, and lemon thyme. The silky tannins and balanced acidity provide a beautiful framework for this elegant wine.
Cold soaked for 5 days prior to fermentation. Fermented in open top macro bins and punched down three times daily for seven days before racking to barrel. Aged 18 months in a mixture of new and second use oak barrels. The wine remained in contact with lees during aging to impart a richer mouthfeel.
100% Pinot Noir
