Primera Pinot Noir
Our home vineyard, Edna Ranch, is located in the coolest appellation in California—a mere 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The northwest to southeast orientation of the transverse Edna Valley allows fog and prevailing winds to funnel into the valley and vineyards from Morro Bay. Our flagship Pinot Noir, Primera, is a small lot selected from the very best barrels to showcase the balance, depth, and complexity of our Edna Ranch vineyard.
Deep ruby color with a purple rim. Enticing aromas of boysenberry preserve, vanilla bean, floral notes of violet, with mineral notes of crushed stone, tar and herbal tones of lavender. Primera has a silky entrance on the palate showcasing nuanced flavors of wild strawberries, blackberries and blueberries. The lavender carries onto the palate with notes of thyme and fresh oregano. Flavor of raspberry puree lingers on the finish. Primera is a big, balanced Pinot Noir from start to finish, exhibiting a rich mouthfeel.
