Wine Tasting Notes
This bright, acid driven Pinot Noir is sourced from some of the most coastally influenced vineyards on the Central Coast. The cool climate generated by the close proximity of the Pacific Ocean is vital for the freshness and vibrancy of this wine. The wine is intense with opulent notes of red cherry and spiced red plum mingle with hints of Mission fig and rose petal, showcasing the distinctive Chamisal spice. The palate is rich and luscious with suggestions of cherry pie, strawberry preserves, and hints of anise, backed by fine and focused tannins that bring balance and length to the finish.
