Winemaker Notes

Always a perennial favorite, Garys' never disappoints! Rich and ripe with plum, black cherry and distinct Garys' bramble. Focused and vivid with a long, satisfying finish. The bee's knees! 2012 is well represented by Gary and Gary in this special bottle.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Possibly even better, the knockout 2012 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is loaded with potential. Gorgeously textured and rich, with beautiful acidity and focus, this medium to full-bodied effort offers up plenty of blackberry, blueberry, flowers, spice, underbrush and floral qualities to go with a layered, complex profile. It's a beauty and I can't wait to try if from bottle. Drink 2015-2022.
Range: 92-95

Wine Spectator
Starts with firm, juicy dark berry, cola and mocha flavors, showing structure and gripping tannins. Drink now through 2023.

A.P. Vin, California
A.P. VIN was established in 2003 to fulfill the dream of its owner, Andrew P. Vingiello. After taking his first sip of artisinal California pinot noir he set out to learn as much as he could about this unique style of bold, complex wine. In 2003 Andrew worked his first wine harvest and found that his passion for handcrafted wine extended beyond just consuming it. Andrew created the very first vintage of A.P. VIN in 2003 from Garys' Vineyard. While only 150 cases were produced, it was enough to win the acclain of well-known publications. The name A.P. VIN orginiates from Andrew's name (Andrew P. Vingiello) and the logo represents his signature on each bottle produced.

While managing to keep his day job during production of the first few vintages of A.P. VIN, it was in 2005 that Andrew decided to fully dedicate himself and his career to his passion for creating unique wines. Shortly thereafter, Andrew moved his production and winemaking from Lompoc to San Francisco, where he could tend to the wines closer to his home.

Today, A.P. VIN produces approximately 2,000 cases of vineyard-designate pinot noir and is focused on making wines of the highest quality, which Andrew believes starts in the vineyard. From the vineyard and row locations to the farming style of each grower, every element adds nuances and subtleties that result in a superior wine.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
