2019 Pinot Noir Jack Ranch
The first crop is from a small new block of Pinot Noir, situated on the south hillside of Jack Ranch vineyard in the famous Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo. A full-bodied Pinot Noir loaded with dark cherry, plums, and forest earth, rich and concentrated.
Deep ruby color, with notes of black cherry, plums, hints of forest, cola, and earth tones. Deep flavors of ripe, blue and black fruits, spice, and subtle yet structured tannins. Integrated acidity with plenty of new French oak barrels makes this wine a full-bodied Pinot Noir with lots of vanilla, cinnamon, and a long-lasting finish. This concentrated wine can be cellared for up to a decade to explore another dimension of this exquisite wine.
