A supple, succulent and flavorful Pinot. The 2007 vintage has become the benchmark for perfect growing conditions and maximum quality potential. Conditions were ideal; no frost, no temperature spikes, just warm days and cool nights to help regulate the uptake of all the precursors of aroma, flavor and structure characterizing this great vintage.
"This little appellation in the Salinas Valley is on an upswing with Pinot Noir, as evidenced by this fine bottling. It’s rich, as you’d expect from the perfect 2007 vintage, and well balanced, with the cherry, raspberry, cola and spice flavors bracketed by crisp acidity and smooth tannins. Probably not an ager, but a wine to watch."
