Deep garnet in color, this wine has a perfumey bouquet layered with sweet notes of black cherry, licorice and cola with hints of eucalyptus and tobacco. The mid-palate is velvety in texture with soft flavors of black fruit and mineral that express the masculine attributes of the Rincon Vineyard. This elegant pinot noir pairs nicely with rack of lamb and mushroom risotto.
The 2011 year began with 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.
