"This is the first vintage of a Mt. Pajaro vineyard designate Pinot Noir—previously this fruit was blended into the Alesia bottling. This vintage the fruit was picked before the heat spike. Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Mt. Pajaro Vineyard opens with cinnamon, dried orange peel, potpourri, dusty earth and pipe tobacco with a spicy vein over licorice, wild blackberries and soft red berry hints. The palate is light to medium-bodied and silky with intense, spicy fruits, juicy acidity and a grainy frame, finishing long and spicy."
