2010 Pinot Noir, Arroyo Seco - 6 Bottles
LIBRARY WINE - 6 Bottles, Shipping is FREE
The 2010 Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir combines fruit from three contiguous vineyards in the old, dry riverbed corridor of the Arroyo Seco AVA: Cedar Lane, Griva and Zabala vineyards. In concert the wine is the progeny of multiple sites, growers and clones: 3 "Dijon" clones (777, 667 and 115) and 3 classic clones (Pommard (4), Martini (13) and La Tache). Each vineyard is vinified separate from one another and ultimately blended by winemaker Alan Phillips prior to bottling.
Aged exclusively in French oak, the composite of three distinct properties, the wine showcases the characters of the region's low-yielding, riverbed terrain: as red raspberry and black cherry fruit mingle with floral, mineral, vanilla and spice.
