Tolosa Winery Pinot Noir Edna Valley Edna Ranch 2006
We select grapes for our Estate Pinot from two of our five vineyard sites. Most of it comes from the vines which immediately surround the winery. The balance comes from hillside blocks a few miles south of the winery on Orcutt Rd. Our most reliable clone for quality is Dijon 667. We also use a good amount of Pommard. Year in and year out 8-10 blocks out of our 20 produce the best wines. These are the ones we lavish extra attention on during both the growing season and the harvest. We farm sustainably in order to maintain health in the environment and for ourselves and neighbors.
Tolosa Winery is a solar, sustainable estate winery located in the San Luis Obispo, on the central coast of California. We specialize in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which thrive in cooler climates.
Very astringent, drying. Might go well with Lamb shank or a breaded veal, but cannot stand alone. Loved the 2005, btw, so we'll keep trying...
A medium-bodied red, wonderful during those cold winter nights...
Excellent nose and medium body. Not smokey.

Wine Tasting NotesThe fruit character leans towards cherry and raspberry in this medium colored Pinot Noir, with aromatic undertones of black tea, violets and cedar. The sweet fruit on the palate is soft and generous balanced by pleasant tannins, finishing with a hint of dry mint and anise. It is an innovative expression to Pinot Noir and designed to be enjoyed in its youth.
