"Brilliant ruby-red. Pungent, spice- and floral-accented cherry and black raspberry aromas are complicated by notes of spicecake, sassafras and dried rose. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors that put on weight with air. Packs a serious punch but shows impressive balance and finesse, finishing spicy, floral and very long, with sneaky tannins adding grip. This assertively flavored pinot checks in at 12.9% alcohol, by the way." Reviewed Nov, 2013

"Dark reddish purple color in the glass. The nose opens slowly in the glass to reveal aromas of dark stone fruits, oak and herb garden. Luscious essence of sweet black cherries with a hint of cassis, anise, oak and savory herbs. The velvety mouthfeel is welcoming and the firm, dry tannins are well managed. The wine finishes on a high note with a good cut of acidity." Reviewed July 19, 2014
âThe dark ruby color speaks of other noble varietals, yet the delicate and integrated palate reminds one of the slopes of Burgundy. Primary fruits of blueberry and blackberry envelope your senses. A distinct salinity adds length to the bouquet while lending a weight to the palate. Supple mouth feel that is refreshing and expressive of dense summer fruits and wild berries. This wine is a perfect marriage of complexity, richness, and accessibility. With its lower alcohol and balanced acidity, it has an ideal aging potential.â
"The 2011 vintage brought cooler-than-normal weather to the central coast throughout the growing season. A late season frost set the vines back significantly; growth essentially started over. During bloom, the dense foggy mornings inhibited fruit-set which resulted in tiny berries that were smaller than a pea. The small size has its attributes â the fruit and clusters grow in intensity rather than in size or volume. July brought a cool, coastal summer and the onset of veraison. "
The Spanish Springs Vineyard is at a 900â elevation just two miles from the Pacific Ocean. The highly alkaline, flaky, decomposed Monterey-Shale soils were planted in the early 2000s to a variety of clones, including: 114, 115, 667 and 777. The fruit was hand-harvested in late September, in the wee hours of the morning, so that it arrived at the winery cold (45ËF). The night harvesting ensures that the acidity and fruit integrity are captured during picking. After a short cold-soak, fermentation naturally progresses without inoculation. We alternate between hand punch-downs, bare-footed piÃ©geage and gentle pump-overs throughout fermentation to develop a rich tannin structure without an over-extracted effect. A longer press cycle marries the soft press (for mouth feel) with the free run juice (for increased fruit) to create a complex structure on the palate. The wine is aged for 13 months in seasoned French Oak (less than 25% new). The wine is not filtered or fined.
