Winemaker's Notes

The heady bouquet on our 2007 Selleck vineyard Pinot Noir is youthful, broad and aromatic, with pomegranate, black cherry, rose petal, white pepper and strawberry. Deep, dense, rich flavors of boysenberry, cassis, limestone, devil's food cake and a streak of sweet cherry underlie the rich mouthfeel with soft but pronounced fine-grained tannins that give us a peek into this wines very long aging potential. Its persistent finish is long
and seductive.

About the Region

An immense expanse of wine-growing real estate, covering portions of six counties between Santa Barbara and the San Francisco Bay Area and including more than 100,000 acres of vineyards, the Central Coast region includes the Santa Maria Valley, the Santa Ynez Valley and Monterey viticultural areas, and more than 20 other appellations. Chardonnay is the main grape planted, but there are scores of others, from albariño to zinfandel, with such rarities as counoise, mondeuse, and vermentino in between.
