David Bruce Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains Estate 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine combines pinot noir from our Estate vineyard with that of four small vineyards in our rugged mountains.These sites benefit from the cooling influences of the Pacific Ocean extending our growing season,allowing pinot noir to achieve mature flavors without becoming overripe.Our Estate vineyard lends structure and a dense core of cherry fruit,while the vines from Split Rail, Branciforte Creek,Kent Berry,and R Bar R Ranch add elegance and complexity. Fifteen months in French oak has brought harmony to the blend,adding subtle toast,nutmeg,and vanilla notes to the finish.The interplay of fruit and spice flavors will pair nicely with foods ranging from simple grilled salmon to more exotic dishes such as roast duck.
