The 2016 'Seven Leagues' Pinot Noir

46.00

The 2016 'Seven Leagues' Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir comes from from Bien Nacido, and Solomon Hills Vineyards. Each parcel was selected to be picked separately and the fruit was destemmed at varying percentages depending on our interpretations of where it most appropriate based on what we see, taste, and feel. Fermentations were conducted in separate 1.5 ton open top containers by way of native yeasts and bacteria. After 14 months in barrel this wine shows primary red fruits with red cherry and raspberry followed by intriguing spice components ranging from clove to asian five spice. This wine tends to show a bit of sandalwood and coriander as well as a touch orange zest. This combination of barrels selected for this blend ended up with 25% whole cluster and 20% new french oak. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
