2010 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard
Situated between two acclaimed appellations, the grapes in Los Alamos seem to have the best of both worlds; the long, cool growing season of Santa Maria, and the warmth of the Santa Ynez Valley, to ensure complete ripeness and depth. With warm days and very cold nights, the fruit from this region achieves incredible concentration and balance. Its slight, well drained soils and a wide range of microclimates allows for a diversity of varietals. The Pinot is very dense and meaty with a deep berry fruit character. It is a red to enjoy now but further aging will enhance the wine.
