2011 Pinot Noir- Santa Cruz Mountains   

This 2011 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot blend is very complex and shows great depth of fruit and spice. Red and black cherries, candied cranberries with hints of raspberries. The palate is long, plush and elegant, with cinnamon spice and lingering black cherry on the finish.

As we fine tune our focus on the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, we are able to bring more vineyards into the mix. This gives us a larger palate and more colours to play with. This 2011 offering includes: the Estate Vineyard, Regan Vineyard, Coastgrade Vineyard, and the Muns Vineyard. There is also a small addition of the Tondre Grapefield from the Santa Lucia Highlands for added complexity.
