Description

After five years of drought, the Central Coast welcomed a return to normal winter rainfall in 2016. These early season rains replenished the vineyards to begin a near-ideal growing season. After a warm spring led to an early budbreak, summer seemed to arrive quickly on the Central Coast. While the Central Coast had abundant warmth in July and August, cool evenings allowed the grapes to mature perfectly, and harvest commenced in mid-August. While the grapes were small and dense, good-sized clusters delivered yields close to the annual averages. As a result, the 2016 Pinot Noirs are beautifully balanced, yet intense. They are composed of 100% Pinot Noir.
