Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir
Santa Lucia Highlands, Monterey County, CA
Sierra Mar is one of the highest altitude vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Its elevation paired with thin soils produces low yields of intense fruit. Winemakers Adam Lee and Matt Revelette used a bit of whole cluster grapes in the blend to create tiers of flavor. Aromas of rose petals, cranberry, raspberry and sandalwood evolve on the palate into a creamy, soft sip with plum and mulberry fruit. Another glass? Yes, please.
