Fossil Point San Luis Obispo County Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The vintage opens with pretty aromas of ripe cherry, strawberry, cedar and rose petal. The palate is round and supple, with fresh, juicy flavors of black cherry and raspberry. Hints of cinnamon spice and cola join fine-grained tannins on a clean, balanced finish. Recommended pairings include grilled albacore, oak-pit grilled steak and herb-roasted lamb chops.

In San Luis Obispo County, we are never far from the influence of the sea. Sunny afternoons yield daily to brisk marine breezes, and the growing season is directly shaped by the seasonal flow of the currents and surface temperature of the nearby Pacific Ocean. Even our soils of calcareous shale and coarse sand were uplifted from the ancient ocean floor and weathered into place over the millennia. Fossil Point pays tribute to this bond between sea and wine. Located less than five miles due west of our estate vineyard, Fossil Point is a rugged headland with sweeping views of the coastline from Port San Luis to the Guadalupe Dunes. Standing on Fossil Point, you can enjoy the same ocean breezes that are on their way to our vineyards, where they will guide our fruit to perfect ripeness. Read less
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
