Santa Cruz County, California

Pinot Noir
Our Santa Cruz Cuvée is always intended to be an overview of the vintage, the vineyards and the appellation. The actual blend of vineyards and barrels varies a bit year to year, but stylistically, we are shooting for a certain level of consistency. The growing season was shorter and drier with lower yields and the wine expresses that. As always, a layer of spice on a base of that cranberry/strawberry fruit that we expect from the Santa Cruz Mountains. Our goal with this cuvée is to produce a wine that is restrained and true to the appellation. The 2019 is 63% Smith Road, 23% Amaya Ridge, and 14% Veranda.. As usual, we expect the Cuvée to be the most accessible Pinot early on, but this vintage particularly, should age well too. Bottled unfiltered and unfined. -Winemaker's Notes
