Winemaker's Notes:

The Central Coast produces stellar Pinot Noir, even though some other growing regions may be better known. The cool days created by Monterey Bay breezes are perfect for Pinot Noir, and it shows in this expression sourced from Monterey vineyards. Aromas of rich red fruit are joined by blueberries with hints of vanilla. Raspberries and a touch of typical earthiness are balanced with soft tannins and a supple finish.

About The Hess Collection:

The Hess Collection was founded by Swiss entrepreneur Donald Hess, who first purchased vineyards on Mount Veeder in 1978 and began making wine under The Hess Collection label in 1983. In 1986, he began renovation of the historic winery, originally constructed in 1903 by Colonel Theodore Gier. The winery opened to the public in 1989. The Hess Collection has vineyards on Mount Veeder, along with their Napa Valley estate vineyards - Su'skol and Allomi in Napa Valley, and Shirtail Creek Vineyard in Monterey. Each of these vineyards is sustainably farmed in accordance with Donald's philosophy: "Nurture the land, return what you take."
