2012 Pinot Noir, Rancho La Viña Vineyard
A single barrel selection. A swirl brings notes of tobacco leaf and darker berry aromas that remind of dried blueberry, huckleberry and rosehips. A taste brings layers of plum-cherry, cola and appellation specific earthy characters that remind of chaparral in the summertime. Beautifully balanced, with lively food-friendly acidity and soft but noticeable chalky tannins. Limited availability.
