Pali, 2017 Pinot Noir 'Pali Vineyard Reserve'
Pali Vineyard is located along the HWY 246 corridor in Gypsy Canyon in the Sta. Rita Hills. Planted in 2012, this 50 acre vineyard sits on a gentle, southeast facing slope comprised of mostly sandy soil. Pali Vineyard sustainably grows mostly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with limited plantings of Gamay and Dornfelder. Pali has an SIP (Sustainability In Practice) certification. Aromas of cola, clove, nutmeg, cedar and black plum show on the nose of this reserve bottling, which included six barrels of 100% new French oak. Rich and deep flavors of black plum and black raspberry meet with white pepper and strong acidity on the palate. 93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
