Pacific Wind Pinot Noir 2019
As a homage to the daily Pacific Wind that moderates the Edna Valley’s climate, we strive for this wine to be fresh as the marine sea breeze. Most of the grapes represented in this wine come from the Hollister and Monighetti sections located on the westside of Edna Valley. These sections are the first to receive the influence from Pacific Wind and are the closest to the Pacific Ocean. The moderating influence preserves the crisp acidity in the grapes.

Wine Notes and Pairing Suggestion:
The 2019 Pacific Wind Pinot Noir is a perfect reflection of the vintage, it combines a “light and breezy” character along with a “serious” Pinot Noir personality. That combination comes from a cool but ripe year and utilizing three different sections of Edna Ranch. Decant this wine for about an hour before you have it and you’ll witness all the complexities of rich earth, leather and roses that will come out over time. Take advantage of the bright, juiciness of this wine with this Alsatian bacon and onion tart recipe.
