- Winemaker Notes

The 2017 Pinot Noir Central Coast comes from multiple vineyards throughout the Central Coast and has a touch of the elegance and purity found in the top cuvées. Impressive black raspberry fruits, white flowers, spice, and a subtle salty minerality all emerge from the glass, and it's beautifully textured, balanced, and just a joy to drink. It's well worth its going rate and should be snatched up by readers.

This blend from sites across the Central Coast carries all the expert hallmarks of the brand, from ripe fruit to earthy spice. Tightly wound aromas of pomegranate, berry, soil and star anise lead into a crisp yet savory palate of raspberry and deep cherry. Pinches of dried sage and thyme linger on the finish.

Aged 10 months in 10% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Central Coast has a pale to medium ruby color and open, inviting aromas of wild blackberries, oolong tea leaves, dried cranberries and cherries with touches of underbrush, charcuterie, dried flowers and earth. The palate is light to medium-bodied with a firm, finely grained frame and earth-laced fruits, finishing with lovely freshness and spice.

92 pts Decanter

Enticing, vivid aromas of ripe red fruit and delicate floral characters. On the medium-bodied palate, velvety tannins cloak dried herbs and plush cherry and strawberry flavours, while subtle minerality and earthy nuances linger on the finish.

Vinous

The 2017 Pinot Noir (Central Coast) is laced with sweet red berry, mint, spice and floral notes. Medium in body, perfumed and weightless in feel, the Central Coast Pinot is an excellent choice for near-term drinking. This is a notable level of quality for a wine whose production approaches 15,000 cases.
