Central Coast Cherry and gunpowder aromas with a delicate hint of cedar from the new oak. Flavors of Cherry pie-filling and Jolly Rancher Candy tantalize the palate.
This is the wine that most people have been waiting for. It is the replacement for our super popular 2012 Central Coast Pinot Noir, which sold out earlier this year after a great and successful run.
Chocolate covered cherries is the predominant aroma of this wine. Hints of herbs and a tea leaf as well. Rich and ripe flavors of bittersweet chocolate and blackberries along with black fruits and sexy toasted oak linger forever. A thread of crisp acidity coupled with sturdy tannins helps maintain the finish and provides for a very complex and luxurious sensation.
