The Santa Lucia Highlands has produced beautiful, delicate grapes since the 70s. However, the region was not recognized as an AVA until 1991. Since then, pinot has been perfected in the region, which experiences the perfect balance of cool, maritime air, sunlight, mist and fog.
Garnet in color, the 2013 SLH Pinot Noir is rich, layered and complex. Dark berry fruit and forest floor dominate the nose and palate. The black fruit gives way to an earth driven mid-palate. Notes of spice, clove, dried herbs, violets and toasty oak are balanced by cool-climate acidity and a velvety finish.
