2018 Pinot Noir, Soberanes Vineyard

2018 Pinot Noir, Soberanes Vineyard

This wine has beautifully expressive notes on the nose. Rich dark fruit, raspberry, dark cherry, and plum are balanced with cedar and clove. On the palate, red fruit shines, strawberry, cherry, and cranberry. The oak is well integrated and the wine finishes smooth. This wine pairs well with grilled pork, wilted greens, and your favorite book next to the fireplace.

Winemaker’s Notes

2018 was an excellent vintage for Pinot Noir in the Central Coast. A cool and dry start to the growing season carried over into the summer. The Monterey morning fog helped regulate the warm days and helped maintain freshness in the fruit.

The Vineyard

The Soberanes Vineyard is a 32-acre site located in the Santa Lucia Mountains in Monterey, CA. Proximity to the ocean creates cool, foggy mornings. The well-drained, granite-laden soils reflect the sun’s warmth and heat. The vineyard is owned by the Pisoni and Franscioni Families.
