The Vineyards: This is a blend of two Santa Cruz Mountains vineyards. The first is Lester Family Vineyard in the hills above Aptos and the second is a little known and affectionately called "Larry's Vineyard" about 10 miles to the north off Loma Prieta Road. Winemaking: 25% of the fruit was foot stomped whole cluster and the rest was destemmed into small open top fermentation vats. Cold soak lasted for five days. The tanks were vigorously punched down two to three time per day and primary fermentation lasted for one week at temperatures up to 92 F. The wine was aged in once-used French oak barrels for fifteen months and bottled with a light filtration. The 2016 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir is a four and a half barrel selection meant to be balanced, full and easy drinking. Technical Data: 104 cases produced Release date: March, 2018 Alcohol: 14.3% Ageing: 14 months in once-used French oak barrels Clone: 115 and 667 "Nice Pinot perfume of strawberry, raspberry, spice and bark. A demure, but flavorful, lighter weighted wine featuring well-spiced red fruits with dollop of oak in the background. Elegantly composed, with gentle tannins, a good cut of acidity and some finishing purpose." 90 points Prince of Pinot
