2014 Tondre's Grapefield Pinot Noir
Santa Lucia Highlands
I am continually amazed with the consistency of the pinot noir from the Tondre's Grapefield - year after year, the wonderful depth of red and black cherry fruit shines through. The 2014 vintage depicts this in a very showy fashion. The opulent fruit is interlaced with the typical racy, spicy characters of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. To balance the overt fruitiness of this vintage, a slightly higher percentage of oak was used, lending an overlay of nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla.
Always unfined, unfiltered and hand bottled. 900 cases made.
