2012 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir
The Pinot noir of Corralitos, at the southern end of the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation overlooking the Pacific, is known for intense flavors, slow ripening, and well integrated minerality.
Crush was followed by six days of cold soak, at 40 degrees. Maceration lasted 12 days. We did a light pressing with a hand-
operated basket press.
The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 15 months, and released at 4 years. It is unfiltered.
This wine is expressive, with gorgeous aromas, and smooth tanins.
