K&L Notes

Entirely sourced from Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo County, Fossil Point is named for the headland area along the rugged coastline. The marine breezes have a distinct influence on the Edna Valley terroir that is itself uplifted, ancient sea floor. The Pinot Noir grapes grow in small clusters and Fossil Point vinifies traditionally in small lots before the wine is aged in neutral and once-used French oak barrels.

    This is a very flavorful Pinot that is brimming with vibrant cherry fruit, floral and earth notes, great balance of acidity and just the right touch of oak. Not over done,this is a fresh, clean and straight-forward wine that will appeal to everybody. This was excellent with my roasted vegetable salad but I also had a glass or two without food and it was just as enjoyable. Excellent value too.

    Crafted from cool climate, hand harvested, coastal Pinot Noir planted in calcareous soil, this wine is an immense value. The winemakers at Fossil Point are dedicated to environmental sustainability, and are part of the Central Coast AVA's Sustainability In Practice program, or SIP. Each sip of this wine is better than the next, with notes of bright bing and black cherry and subtle spice, almost impossibly prolonged with a briny, unique minerality. For those who typically like their Pinot on the lighter side, this is for you, as it is beautifully complex, but compellingly unencumbered.

    Once again this value bottling rises well above its humble price point and provides a delicious and affordable choice for Pinot Noir lovers. This starts out with gentle earthy notes, bright cherry fruit, spice and a generous texture from the neutral oak. This is sweet and lively with very fine tannins on the finish and a lot of personality.
