2021 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir
Our Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir stands out as a distinctive vintage blend, crafted from a combination of estate and partner grower grapes. Each vineyard undergoes a vinification process to accentuate its individual signature, contributing to a harmonious and intensified expression of the renowned Santa Cruz Mountains character.
The 2021 vintage was a welcome change from the catastrophe of 2020, which saw devastating fires throughout the region. Sugar and acidity levels tracked well and while crop size was shorter than we would prefer, we were able to harvest perfectly ripened fruit at a reasonable pace. The resulting wines have excellent balance and intensity. In comparison to our most recent vintages, there are some similarities to 2019 in that the wines possess great elegance and site specificity.
