Winemaker's Notes:

Wind-­swept, mineral laden, and chilled sunlight define this terroir. Heirloom, California selections of Pinot Noir. Planted at 4,000 vines per acre. Aged in seasoned French oak for 15 months. Deep concentration, vibrancy of aromas, purity of fruit, and elegance of texture. Plums and wild strawberries follow a nose of kirsch, sea salt and exotic asian spices.
My Notes:

Rita Hills, Evening Land produces wines imbued with spirit of place.
