2016 La Encantada Vineyard Pinot Noir

2016 La Encantada Vineyard Pinot Noir

Located on the westernmost side of the Sta. Rita Hills, we source Pinot Noir fruit of great character from this well-established, organically-farmed vineyard. The nose shows classic Sta. Rita Hills character with forest floor, flint, and black/white pepper notes. On the palate, the aromatics carry forth to provide a rich set of flavors full of warmed boysenberries, spice, and a hint of cocoa powder. Bottled unfiltered and using only native yeast, we further accent the terroir with 30% whole cluster fermentation.
