Pali, 2017 Pinot Noir 'Pali Vineyard'
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. Rich blackberry-jam and black-plum aromas are enhanced by baking spice on the concentrated nose of this bottling. The palate offers black-raspberry-jam flavors along with cardamom cream and clove, proving tangy and spicy. 91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
