Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Rich ruby color. Aromas of blueberry, raspberry with hint of vanilla. Elegant, lushly structured tannins, fresh berry flavors, long deep fruit finish.
Vineyard Notes
This “PLATINUM” expression of Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir is created by careful barrel selection and blending from two exceptional Santa Rita Hills vineyards. 75% from hillside Sebastiano Vineyard (“Swan” clone) provides rich structure and concentrated flavors. 25% from Zotovich Vineyard (clones 113 and 114), grown in white sandy soil, close to the ocean, develops bright almost perfume-like Pinot Noir flavors.
Winemaker Notes
Crushed into small open top fermenters and cold-soaked for two days, the must was inoculated and fermented on the skins for two weeks to develop full rich flavor and structure.
