Classic Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 was a good year for Pinot Noir. The growing season was one of the longest in recent memory. An unusually warm winter created a very early budbreak and therefore an early start for the vines. Spring rains and mild summer temperatures slowed the vine growth and ripening period and resulted in beautifully flavored grapes. Very low yields ensured full ripening which brought depth of color and bright fruit characters to the finished wine.

Tasting Notes:

This well structured 2006 Pinot Noir from the Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Maria shows beautiful bright aromas of Bing cherry, strawberry and pomegranate. Its soft, elegant structure and natural, well balanced acidity makes this a perfect food-friendly wine from a premier California vineyard.
