2016 Solomon Hills Estate Pinot Noir
Santa Maria Valley
Hand harvested at night, and fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentations. Aged for 16 months in French oak; 33% new. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Very distinct aromas of fennel, cinnamon, boot polish and red fruits dominate the nose at the moment. These carry through on the spicy and substantially masculine palate with integrated acidity, and great length.
