Clean winemaking, transparent Sanford fruit. Nice complexity, If you know the vineyard you’ll be pleased, this is a nice iteration. I’m still not convinced that I loooove central coast PN. At its best it’s really good but just doesn’t really blow me away. Personal preference. I’d rather drink Sonoma coast, Anderson Valley, Oregon

Great Pinot for Cabernet lovers, at only
13.8 ABV. Can’t think of another $30.00 pinot I’d choose over this


Winemaker's Notes: "These grapes were harvested on August 19th and September 3rd at an average of 23.0 brix. The grapes underwent a four-day cold-soak with 1-3 punch downs by hand daily. Once dry, the wine was pressed and put into French oak barrels (15% new) where it stayed for 15 months before being racked and bottled unfiltered in February of 2018."
