This pinot noir balances fruity aromas of cherry and raspberry, with savory hints of earth and mineral.  This medium bodied wine has flavors of dark fruit and spice box followed by a long, smooth finish.  Enjoy with salmon or pork tenderloin.

Wine Profile
Ratings
90 Points. Stephen Tanzer, Nov/Dec 2012. Bright red. Sexy aromas and flavors of raspberry, potpourri and Asian spices. Suave on entry, then juicy and energetic in the mid-palate. An intensely flavored, lithe, seamless pinot with very good finishing focus and cling.
Vineyard Notes
2011 was an El Nino year which resulted in above average rainfall in Southern San Luis Obispo County. Though we were spared the late spring frost that affected other areas, fruit set was reduced by wet spring conditions and yields were about 30% below average. One of the coolest summers on record resulted in long hang time and grapes with high natural acidity. The resulting wines balance refreshing acidity with concentrated flavors due to the low yields.
