The Central Coast AVA, though broad as a region, is home to many world class vineyards. Different meso-climates provide flexibility in the selection of varieties to plant and influence in the style of wines to produce. Rhone and Bordeaux varietals flourish but Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of Burgundian roots are prominent players, as well. The 2013 Inception Central Coast Pinot Noir begins with aromatics of wild strawberry and raspberry supported by an ethereal florality of violets and lilacs intertwined with savory game. Wet mushrooms and rhubarb are present with fleshy plum and cherry tomato. Subtle spice notes of clove and cinnamon marry with orange zest and smoke. The palate also delivers on these promises but simultaneously offers up a strong organic note. Fresh turned earth and clay linger on the finish with pomegranate and leather. There�s a dash of caramel and brown sugar which sweeten and otherwise earthy focus of this wine. A dash of heart on the finish meets hand on with iron-laced gripping tannins. This wine suggests California on the nose, but offers Gevrey on the palate.
