Winemaker's Notes: "Our Monterey County Pinot is sourced from two extraordinary vineyards that are like nothing else in the Monterey area. One is the highest elevation site at 2400 feet and the other is directly off the middle of the foggy Monterey BayThe first of the two vineyard sources for this wine is one of our favorites - Coastview Vineyard high atop the Gabilan Mountains at 2400 feet and planted in decomposed granite. The second is the Olson Vineyard located just a few miles from the center of Monterey Bay and is planted in ancient sand dunes. The heavy fog typical at this vineyard slows down the ripening making this one of the latest Pinot picks every year.
The resulting final wine has exceeded our expectations. The vibrant, spicy red fruit, beautiful silky texture and mouthfeel and a finish that is long and sustained. The aromatics jump out of the glass and the wine that follows is equally expressive and compelling. This is every bit the equal of some of our single vineyard cuvées at an 'appellation wine' price. It is drinking beautifully now, but will certainly come together more with time in bottle. If you have the patience to cellar wines, then this is a wine that will pay you dividends over the next 5 - 15 years."
