K&L Notes

Sourced from two blocks at Hilliard Bruce Vineyard, a block of clone 667 and a block of clone 777. Only 94 total cases produced. The vines grow in sandy soils just 14 miles from the ocean, with cool maritime breezes providing the ideal, moderate climate for Pinot Noir. De-stemmed fruit, long cold soak and a 14 day ferment. Just one new barrel from the five barrels filled. A thrilling combination of pure, succulent fruit, floral notes and high tone spices. Silky and supple on the palate, very accessible and exotic. Seductive, perfumed and elegant Pinot with exceptional purity and varietal expression. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L Domestic wine buyer)

    Another great bottling from El Lugar! This lovely Pinot has very pretty red berry fruit in the nose that continues on into the palate. It's medium bodied with well integrated tannin, and a good marriage of fruit and acidity levels. The sweeter baking spice notes are what set this Pinot apart, but it also has some lovely savory undertones.
