"Deep brilliant red. Ripe red berries, incense and candied flowers on the seductively perfumed nose, along with a smoky mineral accent that adds vivacity. Sappy, alluringly sweet and focused on the palate, offering powerful cherry, raspberry and vanilla flavors complemented by a building Asian spice nuance. Smooth and seamless in texture, finishing with solid thrust, resonating spiciness and smooth tannins." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous - 93 points

The 2015 vintage of Estate Pinot Noir is translucent garnet in hue and expressive of the distinctive character of the Arroyo Grande Valley which produces structured pinot noir with strong mineral notes. Bright strawberry aromas are complemented by hints of pomegranate seed and sage. The palate reveals notes of dried cranberry, strawberry cream, and black tea, with soft sandalwood undertones weighted toward a juicy and lingering finish. Enjoy this pinot noir with grilled salmon or caprese salad.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
Yields in 2015 in Coastal San Luis Obispo County were the lowest since 2011 due to inclement spring weather which caused poor fruit set, as well as the effects of the ongoing drought. Warm and dry summer conditions coupled with the small yield, resulted in an early harvest which was completed in our estate vineyards on September 22, 2015. The wines produced in 2015 are similar to those produced in the immediately preceding vintages of 2013 and 2014, emphasizing harmony and balanced acidity, though with more concentration and structured tannins due to the low yields.
