Pali, 2017 Pinot Noir 'Pali Vineyard'
This Pinot Noir is produced from our estate vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, located along the Hwy 246 corridor in the Gypsy Canyon neighborhood. Planted in 2012, this 50 acre vineyard sits on a gentle, south-east facing slope comprised of mostly sandy soil. This Pinot Noir is a blend of clones 23, 2A, 777, 828 and Pommard and is fermented and aged separately in small lots. Rich blackberry-jam and black-plum aromas are enhanced by baking spice on the concentrated nose of this bottling. The palate offers blackberry-raspberry jam flavors along with cardamom, cream and clove, proving both tangy and spicy.
