Another beautifully made wine by master winemaker, Daryl Groom. Small quantity and hand crafted. In more of a balanced style, goes nicely with food. Ready to be consumed or cellared for a special occasion.

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 was an excellent year for Pinot Noir throughout California and Santa Maria was no exception. The season started with a cool wet spring which gave the vines a very healthy start. Vintage conditions mostly remained cool throughout the growing season, giving the fruit plenty of hang time and allowing the winemakers to pick at optimum ripeness.

Tasting Notes:

Our 2005 Foggy Bridge Classic Pinot Noir represents Santa Maria Pinot at its best. The color is rich and dark, reflecting the excellent ripening conditions of that year’s harvest. The nose is quite complex displaying aromas of bright strawberry and cherry with slight forest floor characteristics. Its fleshy blackberry and strawberry flavors are well integrated with French oak aging to create a rich, full bodied wine of excellent structure and depth.
