2014 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir
This vintage will be remembered as somewhat of a hybrid of the two preceding years: featuring the forward fruit of 2012 and the structure of 2013. The fruit character is more red than black with balancing acid and tannin. Full of energy, the flavors and texture of this wine are unmistakably Santa Cruz Mountains in origin with cherry fruit highlighted by spice, mineral and tea accents. It should drink well over the mid term, 4-7 years at minimum.
