2016 Pinot Noir

2016 Pinot Noir

An enticing ruby color, this gem jumps from the glass with an array of red berry,
pomegranate, and maraschino cherries with hints of spice and slight earthy undertones.
Offering distinct characteristics from both single vineyard offerings we produce: Spanish
Springs Vineyard shows in the bright aromatics, purity of fruit, and concentration coming
from the sandier soils at that site alongside the more savory, earthier elements, and
rounder mouthfeel from the volcanic soils at Odyssey-Thurlestone Vineyard. This SLO
County Pinot Noir blend is sure to be a crowd pleaser now and offers great potential for
aging.
