The great fruit set and ideal 2012 growing season has given us some of the highest quality grapes that we have seen on Central Coast. The maturity of these grapes was optimum with great flavor and color concentration, balanced acidity and ripe tannins. Vibrant aromas of raspberries with notes of strawberries, fermented cherries and a touch of macerated plum and mocha toast invite the senses into this enjoyable Pinot Noir. The red fruit brightens across the palate, picking up raspberry and spice are balanced by the French toasted oak aromas. Soft and silky through the middle, this wine crescendo on the finish leaves a vibrant, juicy memory in the mouth, with proper acidity and a pleasant mouth-feel.
