Hey kids, do you remember your ABCs? That's Au Bon Climat of course, one of the Seven Wonders of California Wine.... ok, I know there are a lot more than seven, but it sounded cool. And 'cool' is the bottle cry for Pinot Noir grown in the coastal microclimate of the Bien Nacido Vineyard, a favorite source of fruit for wise winemakers searching for slow maturation and a long growing season. Our efforts to create unique signature wines in collaboration with folks like Au Bon Climat has paid off beautifully in this latest rendition, a wine of magnanimous appeal, with lustrous, refreshing red fruits- wild strawberry, raspberry and cherry, balanced by savory spice, earth notes and fine, lasting acidity. Certainly enjoyable now, but be sure to squirrel a case away, as this captivating Pinot will only improve over the next several years.
