The 2012 vintage had even, typical Central Coast weather. The summer had normal cool coastal weather, foggy evenings burning off in the late morning sun peppered with a couple of minor heat spells. Early September brought seasonably warm temperatures, which ripened the crop nicely.

The Pinot Noir was fermented with 50% whole clusters. The fermenting must was punched down by hand twice a day by hand. The wine was aged for 22 months in 50% new Françoise Fréres Burgundy barrels.

This Pinot has pretty bright cherry aromas with hints of tea, spice and autumn leaves enhanced by a back note of toast.
