Roessler Cellars La Encantada Pinot Noir 2007
Pinot Noir from Central Coast, California
Aromas of cherry, dusty leather and mushroom open on the nose of our 2007 La Encantada Vineyard Pinot Noir. Over time, these are joined by an herbed lift of sage or thyme and a growing minerality. Dense, bright fruit on the palate builds as the wine opens up and is drawn out along a lengthening finish surrounded by leathery texture, herbs, and earth.
Wine Enthusiast - "The older the vines in this vineyard get the better the wines. Roessler’s ’07 is spectacular, showing massive flavors of black cherries, cola, sandalwood and Asian spices. But even more impressive is the balanced structure. Beautiful now, and should develop over the next 4–5 years. "
PinotReport - "Medium-deep ruby color; complex plum aromas with some meaty, earthy notes; rich, ripe, complex flavors of plum and black cherry; earthy with some tannin and toasty oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep, earthy and just a bit closed in right now, needs time in the bottle and in the glass to develop fully."

About Central Coast
The largest of California's wine growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of California's wine. The district sprawls out, covering most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara. Smaller sub-AVAs of the Central Coast include Monterey Bay, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, Santa Cruz Mountains and many others.
Notable FactsGrape varieties range from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. Some Central Coast wine is generic, bulk wine that contributes to the high production numbers of the area. But many winemakers and wineries, particular in some of the smaller AVAs, are small production artisans, creating unique and high-quality wine. The great thing about the Central Coast is its diversity - you're able to find a number of grape varieties and styles at a number of different price points.
About CaliforniaIt's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country into itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.
The most famous of the California wine regions is Napa Valley, and these wines are certainly outstanding – but it's not as broad and diverse as its larger neighbor, Sonoma County. Down south, Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley is well-known for its Rhône blends, as well as cool-climate varieties like Pinot and Chardonnay. The Central Coast, the largest California AVA, has many different microclimates that lead to a wide range of wines with many sub-AVAs.
