Classic Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 2005
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.
We are a San Francisco based wine brand with plans to open our winery in the city of San Francisco sometime in the next 2-3 years.
This wine has been very popular. It is almost out of stock at the winery. Only a few cases left. It may be out of stock at retail. Call the store before you make the trip to buy the wine.
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.

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.
